The Southern Disability Information Advisory Service (DIAS) agreement for the West Coast was signed by Federation President Elinor Stratford and Corrina Gestro-Best, CEO of WestREAP, in Palmerston North this week. The West Coast DIAS service has been provided by two very capable home based Information Consultants but the service needs to grow in response to increased demand. WestREAP are providers of Education and Activity programmes and have extensive networks in the West Coast. Ms Stratford says "We look forward to seeing the innovative solutions they will bring to service provision, particularly in rural and remote areas of the West Coast." West REAP will take over from the 1st of July.
