Lisa Chesters will be temporarily relocating her office from the Cnr. of Williamson and Myers Street to the office next door - 18 Myers Street, Bendigo.
“The current office has limited disability access, with no wheelchair access to the toilet and the need to manually install a ramp to allow wheelchair access to the office” Ms Chesters said.
“It’s important to me that all community members have equal access to my office, which is why this refurbishment is so important” said Ms Chesters.
Shayne Scott – Service Coordinator at Amicus recently visited Lisa Chesters’ office to arrange a work placement for one of Amicus’s participants however the work placement has had to wait until the refurbishment is complete.
“Bendigo has many beautiful historical buildings however it is important that as a community we prioritise making these building all-access” Mr Scott said.
The relocation is expected to take 10 weeks and will see the office return to the Crn. of Williamson and Myers Street in mid-June.
It is expected that office functions will be disrupted on Monday the 7th of April however from Tuesday the 8th of April the office will be operating as normal.
The office phone number will remain (03) 5443 9055 and community members can make enquiries in person at 18 Myers Street, Bendigo.
