To launch Local Government Week, Council will host a free community event, ‘Hawkesbury Fest’ on Sunday, 21 July 2019 from 10am to 3pm at Governor Phillip Park, Windsor.
Council will host two face to face community sessions with community members on Friday, 19 July 2019 at Hawkesbury Leisure and Learning Centre, 114 March Street, Richmond.
The consultations will be of interest to anyone living with dementia, family and friends of people living with dementia, people concerned with memory loss and service providers. The aim is to increase the awareness of dementia and discuss ways to improve access to support, as well as better access to information and services in the Hawkesbury. This is an initiative of Council’s Dementia Friendly Hawkesbury Working Group.
Morning session: 10am to midday – consultation with people living with dementia and their carers
Afternoon session: 2pm to 4pm – consultation with businesses, organisations and services
