MARIANNE Shearer, CEO of Gippsland
PHN, announced $800,000 for two new pro -
grams starting this month supporting Family
and Carers and Young people who are expe-
riencing substance misuse.
Partnerships with two distinct service
providers will add to the current programs
available to ensure these services are acces-
sible throughout Gippsland. They are:
• Australian Community Support Organi-
sation (ACSO) to provide a family and carer
support service; You’re Not Alone; and
Youth Support & Advocacy Service
(YSAS) to provide a Youth Alcohol and Other
Drug Outreach Service.
Gippsland PHN, in response to the estab-
lishment of the April 2015 National Ice Task-
force, has been listening to and engaging
with all levels of government as well as with
the Gippsland community who shared their
concerns and ideas on how to tackle alcohol
and drug issues in Gippsland.
As a result of the findings, the Federal Gov-
ernment, as part of a national allocation, pro -
vided funding in 2016 for Gippsland PHN to
appoint new, evidence-based services across
Gippsland to help people struggling with ad-
diction to alcohol, ice and other drugs.
These services will complement several
programs already existing within the region.
“ The services will help us make a real dif-
ference on the ground – it is vital for the com-
munity to know that there are specific servic-
es they, or their family, carers or friends can
access when they need to make that call for
help, ” Ms Shearer said.
“ We want people to understand how and
where to connect with the system.”
“ We are very excited about working with
ACSO and YSAS to provide these additional
services in our communities leading to peo-
ple receiving the right support, in the right
place at the right time.
“A t Gippsland PHN we can see how these
services will aid in addressing some of the
mental health and other issues identified by
the Gippsland community during the ‘Tell
Maria’ campaign late last year that gave the
people a chance to directly raise and share
their concerns about health in our region.
“ These newly commissioned services have
been co - designed with the community, con-
sumers, carers existing services and re-
search partners to ensure the best outcome
for the region.
“ We are all working together to our vision
of a measurably healthier Gippsland, ” she

Water Partnership are encouraging local res-
idents to sign up for VicHealth’s H30 Chal-
lenge to improve their health.
The H30 Challenge encourages Victorians

voured water and cordial.
VicHealth CEO Jerril Rechter welcomed
South Gippsland and Bass Coast’s involve-
ment in the H30 Challenge.
“The H30 Challenge costs nothing and
could make a big impact on your life
“A regular 600ml bottle of soft drink
contains about 16 teaspoons of sugar and
there are around 11 teaspoons of sugar in a

morning coffee yet many people are unknow-
ingly consuming such high amounts on a
daily basis,” she said.
H30 Challenge project worker Rachel
Sands expected the challenge to be a suc-
“Taking the H30 Challenge and switching
sugary drinks for water for 30 days is an
easy way to start making a big difference to

ber Pauline Hiscock said.
“At the commencement of our cause in Sep-
tember we were fortunate enough to be gifted

now raised enough money to honour that
agreement and will be donating $100 to that
cause this month.

as reduced crime in recent months the com-

THE South Gippsland Shire Council will
begin a public consultation process by call-
ing for community comment on two pro-
posed new road names in Foster.
The first is off Elphicks Road with the pro-
posed name of ‘Stapleton Road’. The other
road is off Devlin Street with the proposed
name of ‘Hendras Lane’.
The first road off Elphicks Road was creat-
ed as part of a road opening to access prop-
erties along this road reserve and has been
added to the council’s Public Road Register.
Naming the road will allow these properties
to have an official address.
The road off Devlin Street is identified on
the council’s Public Road Register as access
to the Foster Bowling Club.
Director Sustainable Communities and
Infrastructure, Anthony Seasbrook, said ap-
propriate naming of roads was essential in
identifying locations for emergency services,
the delivery of goods and services and pro-
viding primary access to properties.
The proposed road name of ‘Stapleton
Road’ is in recognition of Private Staple-
ton who passed away in Gallipoli in 1916
and had been the Minister of the Methodist
Church in Foster.
‘Hendras Lane’ is in recognition of the Hen-
dra family who have been in Foster since the
early 1900s, owning property from the high-
way through to the Lower Franklin Road.
Letters will be sent to adjoining property
owners inviting written submissions.
