TROJAN’S TREK ANNOUNCES NEW PARTNERSHIP

TROJAN’S Trek Foundation is proud to announce that the Adelaide and Country Primary Health Networks (PHN) have signed a contract with the Foundation which will greatly assist in the delivery of the SA trek in September this year.

By way of background PHN is not a service provider but is focused on commissioning services which are guided by community, clinical and stakeholder input.  The organisation is funded by the Commonwealth Government and has a clear goal of improving health outcomes for the community.

This objective fits nicely with the foundation objectives which concentrate on mental health as it applies to veterans and first responders.

The Chairman Moose Dunlop OAM, said it was appropriate and he was very pleased to be associated with an organisation resourced by the Commonwealth with responsibilities for community mental health.

ST MARY’S PROBUS LISTENS IN

As part of the program of information sharing with the public, past trekker Glen Grant and Moose Dunlop OAM attended the club gathering at the Lutheran Church Hall at Pasadena 13 August.

A large gathering of interested members listened as the philosophy of the Foundation was spelt out by Moose.

This was followed by a first-hand description of the problems facing discharged defence force members attempting to gain employment while dealing with the military compensation system and DVA.

A number of insightful questions followed, showing the empathy of the audience.  The hat was sent around and a very respectable $320 was added to the coffers for the September trek.

Our thanks go to the President and Glenda for their interest and to the members for the contributions.
