QCoal supports Bowen Flexi Care

Local disability service provider, Bowen Flexi Care has been given a welcome boost through the QCoal Foundation’s recent round of Community Spirit Grants.

Bowen Flexi Care General Manager Faileen James said the $2000 grant would help the important local service purchase new iPads for clients to use as part of their Simple IT learning group.

“We’ve been developing our Simple IT learning group to broaden our clients’ IT skills and enhance their ability to stay connected with the wider community,” Ms James said.

“Now more than ever before people are using technology to stay in touch with loved ones and access healthcare services. It is important our clients also have the opportunity to embrace the world of technology”

“Every cent goes a long way and we are truly grateful to the QCoal Foundation for their ongoing support and recognition of the services we provide in our local community.”

QCoal Foundation Chief Executive Officer Sylvia Bhatia said that social connections are an important part of mental well-being.

“Bowen Flexi Care understands the importance of social connections for their clients. The Simple IT learning group deserves all the support it can get to help people improve their IT skills so they can stay in touch with relatives, friends and healthcare professionals.”

QCoal Foundation’s Community Grant Program encourages community-led initiatives to improve liveability, health and education in communities throughout regional and remote Queensland. Further information is available at:
