The Mornington Community Information and Support Centre recently held it's AGM.
The centre is managed by a volunteer Committee of Management and staffed by 7 paid staff and over 72 dedicated volunteers and provides invaluable frontline support services for people in crisis who need emergency assistance along with general and tourist information to residents and visitors to the Mornington Peninsula as well as running the Beach End Op Shop in Mornington.
Over the 2015/16 period the SPCSIC were there to assist over 19,110 contacts who were assisted across a wide range of services. including emergency relief and fresh food program.
Faced with severe Federal funding cuts over the 2015/16 period the community centre showed resilience with quick, innovative thinking and opened up an op- shop and relied on donations from very generous benefactors including grant funding from the Mornington Peninsula Shire so they could continue to offer assistance to the marginalised and most vulnerable in our community without compromise.
Well done to everyone who has offered their support to Mornington Community Support and Information Centre to help it through the last year in particular.
Congratulations to Lisa Elliot - Manager and her dedicated team, the Board, Committee and Volunteers for an outstanding contribution towards taking care of our local community in Mornington- it was great to catch up with you all at the AGM
