EASY Guide, meaning Engaging and Supporting Youth, is a quick reference guide for school welfare staff to assist students who are experiencing difficulties, enabling them to quickly and easily contact relevant service providers across the wider Riverina region. It covers Education, Family, Health, Training and Employment connections.

GetSet Partnership Brokers are in the process of compiling the EASY Guide 2011 for the Riverina region in collaboration with the Department of Education and Training, now NSW Department of Education and Communities, Riverina Region (Griffith office).

Region 17 includes towns bordered (broadly speaking) by Coleambally, Leeton, Griffith, Hillston, Lake Cargelligo, West Wyalong, Ardlethan and Narrandera and all within that radius. Information from providers is currently being collated by GetSet, and we anticipate that the EASY Guide will be available to schools at the beginning of third term.
