Power Tynan boosts Lifeline initiative
POWER Tynan Charitable Trust recently presented Lifeline Darling Downs CEO Derek Tuffield with a $1,500 cheque towards the purchase of three internet enabled tablets for use in rural and remote counselling.
The tablets will enable Lifeline staff in Toowoomba to provide counselling to people in South West Queensland via Skype, FaceTime or a similar program.
It will also allow clients to indicate their current feelings in face to face meetings to track progress over a number of months.
"We are striving to enhance and improve our counselling services with the use of technology, assisting us to support people in the regional towns of Roma, St George and Charleville, just to name a few" Mr Tuffield said
"We need to raise $6,000 from the community in order to go ahead with this initiative, and this donation from the Power Tynan Charitable Trust is a great first step in the right direction."
The Power Tynan Charitable Trust has donated over $130,000 since its inception in 2010 and is open to the firm's staff, clients and the public to contribute funds.
