Mornington Peninsula Shire has distributed close to 70 community information stands throughout the Peninsula at supermarkets, shopping centres, Bunnings and some chemists for those who have limited or no access to resources such as internet and mobile phones.
The stands contain flyers about support services, such as care packages, and news for our community including which face to face council services may be closed and alternative ways to access some services.
While this information is available in digital formats, there are many in our community who are not connected online.
The Shire wants to make sure everyone receives this vital information and is therefore providing it in hardcopy at information stands at busy locations across the Peninsula.
Mayor Sam Hearn said, “We want everyone in our community who needs our support to know help is available. We have many older residents who are not online, and many who simply don’t have the means to access digital information.
“Please pick up a flyer for a family member, neighbour or friend and let them know of the support services on offer from the Shire.”
The information at these stands will be regularly updated as the situation in relation to COVID-19 and its effect on our services changes.
