Beyond Bank backs new Whyalla Community Hub.
A new community centre is a step closer to reality after winning significant financial support from Beyond Bank Australia.
The Bank has provided $40,000 towards a Whyalla Community Centre, billed as a ‘one-stop shop’ for Whyalla’s older residents and their carers.
“Establishing a Community Centre has been a goal of Whyalla Aged Care for a number of years and with the support of Beyond Bank’s Foundation Grant we are now able to make this a reality,” said Whyalla Aged Care’s Chief Executive Officer Juanita Walker.
“Older people and their families often tell us that the aged care system is complex and difficult to navigate, leaving many without the services or support they need to live the life the way they choose.”
The Community Centre, to be housed in the former Beyond Bank branch on Donaldson Terrace will provide a range of user-friendly information, support and services.
“As a customer owned bank, community is in our DNA and we are always looking to support our community partners who are doing great work in their local areas,” said Mr David Nichol, Chair, Beyond Bank Foundation.
“Whyalla Aged Care is a trusted frontline provider of a critical service and we jumped at the chance to support this fantastic initiative which will really help people make the right decisions about what is best suited to them and their families.”
Day option programs will also be operated from the centre, ensuring vital emotional and social support for older people who can be at risk of loneliness and isolation.
Importantly too, the centre’s flexible space will allow it to be used as a central venue for community support groups who manage many key support services in the local aged and disability sectors.
“Beyond Bank supports many fantastic community projects right across Australia so we were very excited by the news that the Board of Beyond Bank Foundation had decided to donate $40,000 towards the development of Whyalla Aged Care’s Community Centre,” said Mrs. Walker.
“Whyalla Aged Care appreciates all of the ongoing support that Beyond Bank provides to the organisation and we look forward to continuing our partnership for many more years to come.”
The Community Hub is expected to open towards the end of September 2018 and more news about the grand opening will be announced soon.
