Silver Chain will provide personal care and social support services to the Shire of Coolgardie from next year.

This comes after Silver Chain agreed to take on responsibility from the State’s Home and Community Care Services and the Commonwealth-funded Community Aged Care Packages from January 1.

These services were provided by Coolgardie Community Care.

At the same time the Eastern Goldfields Volunteer Task Force, which provide services in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, will be amalgamated with Silver Chain.

EGVTF chairperson Wendy Heaton said they had no choice but to join another bigger organisation.

“All in all there won’t be much change to people,” she said.
