Last week we celebrated the launch of the Green Cross Community Outreach Bus generously donated by the Green Cross Project at the Cranbourne Integrated Care Centre.
The community outreach bus, which was officially launched with a traditional Aboriginal smoking ceremony, will be used by different teams across Monash Health to provide clinical services for clients within our community. We aim to improve client access and the health and social wellbeing of people experiencing vulnerability.
“We hope that this community-based outreach service will create more holistic health care by meeting people in their own communities, developing relationships that encourage improved connection with our services” said General Manager of Community, Julia Oxley.
The Aboriginal Health team is one of many that will use the bus to conduct health screenings at local Aboriginal events and visit local schools to work with Aboriginal children.
Thank you to the Green Cross Project for this generous donation.
