Do you know where to go to get the support you need?

Te Korowai Trust and Nelson Bays Police are working together to help people all ages to access health, social support and road safety services.

This free event is being held at the Annesbrook Church in Stoke to make people aware of what services and support is available and how to get assistance.

There will be free food, spot prizes and a draw to give away a car seat.

Police, Ride to Live and ACC Ride Forever programme presenters, along with driving instructor Kevin Bannan will be there to explain where to go for driver and rider training and how the graduated licence system works, including how to avoid getting fines , demerit points and what to do to get your licence back. As an incentive, they will be offering discounted training opportunities as well as handing out information about road safety.

Age Concern will conduct checks for the elderly to ensure their vehicles are set up correctly for them to drive safely. Bookings can be made through Age Concern on 544 7624 or turn up on the day.

Plunket will demonstrate a driveway safety kit designed to prevent children being injured by reversing vehicles, while Te Korowai staff will outline their car seat for hire scheme and explain the importance of budgeting for things like vehicle registration, warrant of fitness, running costs and insurance. Qualified staff will be able to ensure your baby seat is correctly fitted.

Nelson Technical Institute staff will explain the employment opportunities arising from obtaining for example their HT licences and the courses available to do the training. There will be a heavy truck present to demonstrate what is required on the day.

Nelson nurses complete with a new field emergency tent will be on hand to conduct free basic health tests, including blood pressure checks. There will be advice and assistance on domestic violence, healthy cooking and nutrition and the benefits of exercise from a range of providers, including Te Korowai Trust and Victory Boxing.

Senior Sergeant Grant Andrews said the open day is an opportunity for people to learn about things that could benefit them and make a positive difference to their daily lives.

“We are here to help and provide assistance on the day and encourage people to attend this event and bring along friends or neighbours who might benefit from accessing community support.’’

Te Korowai’s Betty Soane says the event is open to everyone.

“Not everyone knows where to go for help, so we hope this is a stepping stone for them to seek support,’’ she said.
