Well April is almost gone, the federal election is just weeks away on May 18th, and once again it is time for our April 2019 newsletter!

We hope you enjoyed the public holidays during the month and the wonderful autumn weather we have had.

Staff at WCHM have been very busy this month finalising a series of new reports one of which was launched on 11 April. And we are already planning our work for next year – 2019-20! To inform that work we hope you can assist us with your feedback by completing a short Survey which you can read about below!

We hope you enjoy reading this month’s newsletter!
