New Postal Address

As Recovery Rocks Community Inc. is slowly growing, the Management Committee has found the need to review some of our current systems.  Within this review, it was determined that our current Postal Address was not sustainable; and have determined that we needed to change from our previous address.

We would like to advise everyone that our new postal address is:

RECOVERY ROCKS COMMUNITY INC.

PO Box 11

Kwinana WA, 6966

We are currently in the process of updating these details within our processes.

We would appreciate your patience and attention to this change as we finalise this process.

The Recovery Rocks Community Inc (RRCi) is pleased to offer an exciting  5 day training course called ‘LISTENING DIFFERENTLY’, and is based on the principles of Intentional Peer Support.

A BIG thankyou!

Our latest Annual General Meeting (AGM) and network meeting had turned out to be our most productive and successful meeting to date.  Our Annual Report was received and accepted by our members with appreciation,  and our new Management Committee has been selected. The new executive positions to be allocated at our next Management Committee meeting in March.

At the conclusion of our AGM everyone had the chance to relax and enjoy the vast selection of food on offer for lunch, to catch up with friends and get to know new members and those whom had attended to learn more about our organisation.

The Management Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all who volunteered, helped to prepare documents and reports, welcomed attendees and coordinated the after event lunch.  Without all your support this AGM would not have been the success it was.  We also would like to thank everyone who came to dedicate their day towards supporting our organisation and showing interest in learning what our organisation has been doing within the past year to meet the needs of our members.

A BIG Thank you to ALL!
