News in Brief: Mission Beach


Dear Supporter of Mission Beach Community Support Inc.

Tully Support Centre conducted a survey in 2017 to determine what support services were needed (or lacking) in Mission Beach.  They contacted a wide range regional service providers and also local community members.

A major finding from the survey was that many service providers were unable to find accommodation in Mission Beach in which to meet their clients that was both safe and enabled a confidential conversation.

Mission Beach Community Support Inc grew from those survey findings, with a long-term aim of obtaining a community centre in Mission Beach.

Four years on, the group has provided local residents with a number of useful workshops and information sessions, distributed a comprehensive information brochure to households, and provides important links to service providers and community supports via a website and Facebook page.

However, the aim of a community centre is still a long way off and is not seen as a priority with Cassowary Coast Regional Council.

The Annual General Meeting of Mission Beach Community Support Inc. will be held on Monday, September 6, and the committee hopes that you will come along and let us know your feelings about the future path of the organisation – is the aim of a community centre also a low priority with local residents?  Is it worth continuing?
