Council to launch new support services brand
THE looming introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme into the region has provided a perfect backdrop for a name change and new logo for Clarence Valley Council Care and Support Services which they will launch this morning.
Service manager, Kerry Little, said the new name - Clarence Care and Support - was modern and showed the organisation as a provider of quality community services throughout northern NSW.
"Our logo was designed by a local graphic artist, Yohanna Dent, who has taken the colours of the Clarence Valley and paired them with the meaning of our name, care and support," she said.
"We've added a flower with a heart in the middle to really show what our service means to our staff and customers."
Clarence Care and Support is an independent and not-for-profit organisation servicing the aged and people living with a disability. It enables individuals and families to achieve a lifestyle of their choice.
"Every individual that connects with Clarence Care and Support is looking for the help they need to enrich their lives," Ms Little said.
"The services we provide help them live and choose their lifestyle and remain living in their community.
"We are here. We are here to listen. We are here to act. We are here to help.
"We create care plans that suit each individual's and family's needs."
Ms Little said Clarence Care and Support had helped people in the Clarence Valley and throughout the northern NSW area since 1994.
"We know our area, our people and our services," she said.
"Our services are provided by staff who will work to provide quality and caring individual supports whether in the home or in the community. This is part of the vision and purpose of Clarence Care and Support; to deliver the highest quality community care services to enable all people to live a lifestyle of their choice.
"Our staff receive extensive training and education to ensure we have confident, experienced and knowledgeable people to match with individual needs.
"This also allows Clarence Care and Support to be an inclusive service for all in the community who may need support.
"Clarence Care and Support is committed to enablement, community development and quality services for the aged and people living with a disability.
"We are proud our service is accredited for aged care service provision as well as a registered NDIS service provider."
Council is launching the rebrand of at the Civic Centre today at 10.15am.
