Support Service Specialist - Natacha - Nowra Service NSW, and to connect and discuss ways Service NSW can provide support and services to your community.
Cost of Living Service is a NSW Government initiative bringing more than 70 rebates and savings together in one convenient location. A savings finder tool is available at
https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/campaign/cost-living which allows customers to answer 6 simple questions to quickly identify rebates and savings they may be eligible for.
Customers that need more help to access and apply for rebates can book a free 1 hour over the phone appointment by calling 13 77 88. In future, we will be returning to face to face appointments, at which time customers can book a face- to-face appointment at their local service centre (Nowra/Ulladulla). Appointments run for approximately 45 minutes to an hour.
The cost of living service will continue to expand and grow with more rebates and savings. We have social media content, brochures, newsletter copy, and posters which we can provide for distribution within your community. Please get in touch to learn more about Cost of Living and to discuss options in how best to raise awareness in your community.

Bay & Basin Community Led Strategic Plan - We want your input / ideas

The Sanctuary Point Bendigo Community Bank and surrounding village community representatives are facilitating preparation of a Community Led Strategic Plan for the whole of the Bay & Basin area.

The purpose of Bay & Basin Community Led Strategic Plan will articulate the broad values, future needs and priorities of the Bay & Basin area.  Key findings of the Strategic Plan will inform planning and project deliverables for the community, Council, State Government and other partners of this community led project.

The Strategic Plan is seeking input and ideas from everyone who lives, works and visits the Bay & Basin area.

Initial community input and ideas is encouraged thorough a survey that can be picked up the Sanctuary Point Bendigo Community Bank or sourced on line at 
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BayBasinInitialSurvey
 
The initial survey, and the subsequent follow up work, will provide valuable information to understand how the Bay & Basin sees itself now, where it sees itself in the future and will set out an opportunistic pathway to move ahead.

After this survey the process to prepare the Strategic Plan will involve:
1. Analysis of survey results with key existing issues being identified by themes.
2. Additional community consultation to confirm the survey findings and themes.
3. Preparation of the draft Community Led Strategic Plan for further community review.
4. Finalisation of the Bay & Basin Community Led Strategic Plan based on community feedback.

Please help to ensure that the character and values of the Bay & Basin area are enhanced and protected now and into the future by completing the survey and encouraging your friends and neighbours to participate in this Community led project.
