New disability service gives Trangie more choices

26 February 2014



Minister for Disability Services John Ajaka today officially opened Trangie Choices – a new facility to deliver work and day programs for people with disability at the newly renovated Girl Guide Hall in Trangie.

"The NSW Government provided $50,000 for equipment and furniture to help transform the building as part of its ongoing funding commitment of more than $13 million annually to Challenge Community Services," Minister Ajaka said.

"This funding is crucial to help support people with disability in rural NSW and is being used to provide a wide variety of community-based activities including fishing, bowling, cooking and computer training will be provided.

"Today is an exciting day for the residents of Trangie who have thrown their support behind this project so people with disability can live and work in their local community.

"It means people with disability will no longer have to travel 45 minutes to Dubbo every day to access work and day programs.

"The Trangie community should be applauded for championing the inclusion of people with disability.

"I also commend Challenge Community Services for its long standing and ongoing commitment to support people with disability, their families and carers in Western NSW," Minister Ajaka said.

Trangie Choices is managed by Challenge Community Services - one of the largest community support providers in regional NSW.

Challenge Community Services provide a range of services including supported accommodation, supported living funds, individual accommodation support packages, as well as transition to work, community participation, active ageing and life choice programs.
