    Community services access services final Community services access services final Presentation Transcript

    • Community Services initiatives by Access Services
    • It all started April 2009 with an email from Beth.
      .
    • .
      There was a think tank where ideas were discussed- we decided on “Food For Fines” and Mission Australia as the charity.…
    • In October we got approval – for 1 week in December.
    • 2009 was a great success- it ran for 2 weeks and 13 boxes of food were collected. The positive response and publicity were overwhelming.
    • Also in 2009 we decided there was a need for Justice of the Peace Service in the Library
      So we considered who were most worthy and
      Rosemary and Vicki were appointed.
    • We covered the supervisor
      2010 saw the emergence of the Knit Wits
      And the tea room
      We knitted blankets for Wrap with Love
    • In November we delivered 14 completed blankets to the Warehouse
    • In 2010 Food For Fines was an outstanding success.
      It ran for 3 weeks and almost 2000 items of food were collected.
      We fed the homeless in a local shelter for 2 weeks.
    • All this enhances the image of UTS as a vibrant part of the community, not only a centre of learning but also the city university with a social conscience.
