MSS Great Lakes Office

16 Mar 2020

We are excited to share with you that we officially opened our new MSS Great Lakes office on Tuesday 10 March with the Hon. David Gillespie MP as our guest of honour.

MSS has a brand-new office in Tuncurry. Many of our clients reside in the Great Lakes area and we are proud to announce the opening of our office at 66 Manning Street, Tuncurry.

Manning Support Services Inc. (MSS) is not-for-profit community based organisation which has been operating for over 40 years in the Mid Coast and Port Macquarie-Hastings local government areas. MSS is led by a team of dedicated, qualified and experienced voluntary Board of Directors. MSS employs over 150 staff and proudly works with many exceptional volunteers within the local communities.

The addition of this new space in Tuncurry means we have a local base to better serve our clients in Forster, Tuncurry, the Lakes Way and beyond.

From our new office we will be able to serve our Great Lakes customers with a variety of services and will look to bring many more exciting programs to the local community in the future.

The services currently based in our Great Lakes office include:

  • Home Care Packages;
  • Domestic Assistance;
  • My Meals (our home delivered meals service); and
  • Free counselling for adults and young people over 13 years of age.

Any of our services can be arranged by contacting MSS Great Lakes directly on 6551 1820 where a friendly member of our team will be waiting to assist.
