Community Vision For Social Worker For Timboon Realised
The community’s vision for a social worker at Timboon and District Healthcare Service (TDHS) has come to fruition with the appointment of Hayley Weel.
Ms Weel was born at TDHS and went to school “across the road”, she clocked on for her first shift last Thursday and is now employed in Timboon three days a week.
The position was one of the priorities communicated via the Community Survey and Conversation Caravan project conducted in 2018.
Ms Weel has experience as an acute and palliative care social worker, she has delivered assessment services for vulnerable children and families and provided counselling at a youth health hub.
“I think it has been about seven years since there has been a social worker here at Timboon, I’m looking forward to meeting community members and other service providers, making connections and building a service here that reflects what the community wants"
