Our Beautiful Sign

Hello All

Just a quick note to show you the signage at the front of the Carers Building in 182 Lord Street, Perth.

We have been in the building for 8 years and at last have our own sign out the front.  It is not overly large but it does show who we are and where we are.

We would like to thank the ‘boys’ from the Di Di Mau Golf Club for their fantastic donation to enable us to get the sign done.

 

PTSD Seminar – June 26th

If you or someone close to you suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder then we invite you to attend our free seminar to learn about PTSD.
