VICTOR HARBOR – The Victor Harbor community is acting on the growing social problems that are impacting its society.
On Wednesday, May 31 from 6pm, there will be a community forum titled ‘Breaking the Cycle’ at the McCracken Convention Centre.
Guest speakers will include Member for Finniss Michael Pengilly who will be the facilitator, SA Network of Drug and Alcohol Services Sam Raven and Junction Australia, (domestic violence) Jessica Stevens.
The focus will be on domestic violence, alcohol and drugs, and other social issues.
The night will also involve a Q&A panel session involving ambulance officers, emergency doctors, police and drug squad representatives, and community service representatives.
Victor Harbor R-7 School chaplain Maureen Moores said it was time the public realised what was happening in Victor Harbor.
“For the future of Victor Harbor it is important to attend and become informed on social issues such as poverty, drugs, domestic violence, and the lack of resources that are all occurring in our community. It is a growing problem,” she said.
Participants attending the ‘Breaking the Cycle’ event have the opportunity to choose from a selection of donated items for someone they know that is in need.
The items available will range from women’s handbags, packs for men and backpacks for children.
The goods are collected by the newly formed In-NEED group, which consists of members of the community.
