Access Accomodation just the same

STILL the same faces and still the same enthusiasm, just under a different name.

The Friends of the Emerald Rural and Remote Communities have changed their name to Access Accommodation.

The group’s spokeswoman, Sue Coad, said the name change came with the progression of the not-for-profit group, which started in 2008.

“We are still retaining the original concept… that is to provide permanent accommodation for people with a disability,” Sue explained.

“So they can connect with friends and family and remain and live an inclusive community life.”

Sue said the group decided to change its name as the original one was hard to understand and they “wanted to link what they were doing with what they wanted to achieve”.

The group is building four units on the south side of Emerald through community fundraising and lobbying the council.
