Community Voices will see a staff change in the new year. Karina Cowling is moving on into another YFCC program and we will welcome Bianca Taylor to our project.

Karina and her counterpart at WISE Employment, Allana Bugge, have done a power of work in getting the project up and running and we wish Karina well in her new role. Don’t be too disappointed though because Karina will be a regular visitor to choir sessions in the New Year.

The Community Voices Choir project has been very successful with over 60 participants and 29 mentors registered to date. The choir has had three performances since August, performing at the YFCC Homelessness Week luncheon, the East Devonport Has Talent event and more recently singing Christmas carols for the residents at Melaleuca Home for the Aged.

You can watch their performance at the East Devonport Has Talent event here

And a big welcome to Bianca.

Karina and/or Allana will be introducing Bianca to our project stakeholders in the New year so expect a phone call to arrange a visit.
