The Rural Support Service Strategy is a new initiative, and has a 2 year outlook from July 2020 to June 2022. This strategy provides a short-term framework for how Desert Blue Connect and the communities in the North Midlands work together to advance a shared goal of optimised health, safety and well-being of all people. It also outlines what we will do as a community organisation and how we will go about it.

About the Rural Support Service Strategy

Over the past year, we have talked to our communities in the North Midlands region and they have provided a clear story of what they want from Desert Blue Connect.

This has shaped the direction of the organisation and this strategy – together we can optimise the health, safety and well-being of all community members.

These talks have informed our commitment across 5 priority areas to achieve certain goals over the next 2 years.

  • Mental health and wellness
  • Men’s health promotion
  • Family support for families
  • Partnership approaches
  • Provision of outreach Desert Blue Connect services
