Thank you for your presentation at the New England Regional HACC Forum, Held in Tamworth. The HACC services at the forum were informed and inspired by the story of The Friendly Faces Helping Hands Foundation. HACC services in the New England area are acutely aware of the need for information which the Foundation provides as rural services supporting people in health crises, and as rural residences themselves.
The impact of your presentation was lasting. At local Community Care network meetings in the months which followed there was ongoing discussion about and appreciation of what you are doing. As a result we have provided services with a number of Friendly Faces travel kits, and produced Friendly Faces coffee mugs to promote the Foundation.
We wish you every success with the Foundation and we would encourage other organisations to provide whatever support they can. We would be happy to discuss this further with any interested organisations.
