Information service open

THE DISABILITY and Aged information Service (DAISI) opened its new office at Corporation Cct, Tweed Heads, last week, with local MP Geoff Provest as guest speaker.

DAISI CEO and chair of the National Disability Advocacy Network (NDAN) Dona Graham did the honours and spoke about the services provided by the information service.

DAISI is an award-winning community-based not-for-profit organisation grounded in Lismore and services the communities of the NSW Far North Coast.

Founded in 1992, the service aims to provide information that is relevant and accessible to the aged, those of all ages with a disability, the disadvantaged and marginalised in the community and their families, carers and advocates.

"The staff are dedicated, committed and compassionate people with grassroots knowledge on disability," Mr Provest said.

"It's a great organisation and a vital one, considering that Tweed Heads has one of the highest numbers of disabled people in the state."
