The wonderful team here at Dorrigo Support Centre is one of both paid employees and eager volunteers, who all offer a friendly smile, a hot coffee and tea and an open ear if you'd like one. All staff will happily advocate on your behalf if need be, or even just come over and read the newspaper. Within reason, if you want it we'll try and make it happen!

"My association with Dorrigo goes way back. Along side my husband, we have raised 3 children who are now off on their own adventures and run a successful stud Beef Farm, I also was a partner in a small retail business for a number of years. I started at the Support Centre in June 2013 as a Disability Support Worker, where I have met many wonderful people. I enjoy craft, playing Sport, living and working in this community & I have been an active member in numerous committees on the Plateau over the years.

I'm a Dorrigo local who has worked in the Dorrigo Community in a variety of employments. My passion of assisting people, led me into completing a course as an Assistant in Nursing - Aged Care. I started working at Dorrigo Support Centre as a support Worker in 2017. I enjoy reading and gardening when time allows.
