It was great to visit two community-based groups. First, the Ottoman Village Aged Care premise. A non-profit organisation providing quality residential and respite care service for the aged and disabled, managed by community members and part of the Broadmeadows Turkish Islamic Society Inc. Thank you to Asuman Kacar (Facility Manager) and Ms Semra for the tour.
I also attended the Grand Opening of The Common Bean Café at Dianella Community Health GP Superclinic. The Common Bean Café is a social enterprise initiative of Banksia Community Services which aims to combat youth unemployment in the Hume area by providing training and employment in hospitality.
It was great to spend time with community-minded people who are doing great things in Calwell.
