How does CHSN assist the community?

A strong network of organisations across many sectors and caring individuals within the community make up the CHSN family. CHSN provides a base for networking to support both interagency and advocacy roles. CHSN has transitioned into a physical 'hub' that is very active on the coalface of community needs. CHSN disseminates information across the Gympie region and is also responsible for facilitating training events and forums. CHSN acts in an auspicing and nurturing role for many smaller unfunded groups. The Gympie region is very well served by CHSN as a vital player in providing holistic approach to community development, across intergenerational bounds.
