Member for Upper Hunter Michael Johnsen MP and Bishop Bill Wright officially opened the Muswellbrook Community Hub, encompassing a variety of community providers, in February.
Q As my 8 year-old son was getting dressed for school the other day, he told me he had “jiggly bits” – referring to his stomach. At the time, I didn’t know what to say so I brushed it off. But the truth is, I know my son is heavier than he should be at his age: partly because he enjoys processed sugary food, partly because he is not as active as his older brother and would prefer to spend time on his iPad, and partly because I don’t force or encourage him to be any different. But I worry about his health as he is getting older, and now that he has made this comment, how do I introduce the idea of a healthier lifestyle?
In an effort to better serve residents of the Upper Hunter, CatholicCare Hunter-Manning opened a brand new office in Muswellbrook earlier this month.
As Upper Hunter farmers and their families continue to struggle with ongoing and extreme drought conditions, CatholicCare is leading the charge to support local farmers by offering them free family and relationship support services, as well as free counselling services.
CatholicCare Social Services Hunter-Manning is a registered NDIS provider and a facilitator of opportunity for people with a disability. We’re currently seeking passionate, caring and experienced team players to join our organisation as Care Team Workers.
