City of Newcastle has launched a new one-stop-shop for local community services, making it easier for residents to find the right service and access the latest information.
The digital channel, My Community Directory, features important up-to-date information on community organisations that provide services in the Newcastle local government area, and can be searched by location, services category or keyword.
“Refreshed daily, the directory makes it easier for residents to carry out the previously complex and time-consuming task of finding the most appropriate service,” Council said in a statement.
“City of Newcastle has been working with local community services to list important service information, as well as any events or volunteering opportunities.”
The directory includes 28 services categories including Crisis and Emergency Services to Community Clubs and Interest Groups, Ageing Services, Disability Services, Self Help and Education.
Another feature is a downloadable Newcastle Homelessness Directory, created by Hunter Homeless Connect with $10,000 support from City of Newcastle’s Boost Our City grant as part of its COVID-19 response package.
City of Newcastle officially launched My Community Directory yesterday as part of the NSW Seniors Festival event hosted by Hunter Multicultural Communities.
