Gippsland Regional Communication Service – local, effective and valued

Staff and management of Gippsland Regional Communication Service celebrate their service at the end of 2019

Gippsland Regional Communication Service started in 2005.

Over the years the service has become an integral part of local communities in the geographically large area of Gippsland.

Working in partnership with people with communication disabilities, the Regional Communication Service has identified opportunities and needs in the local community and worked to address them.

A huge number of mainstream services (such as local bus and transport companies, emergency response workers, tourism providers, hospitals, primary health providers, and local government offices), as well as disability-specific services, have been able to improve their access and responsiveness to people with communication disabilities through their work with Gippsland Regional Communication Service.

Great work, Gippsland Gals!
