Advance Diversity Services (ADS) is undertaking a survey to find out if there are community programs, activities or services that members of the St George community would like to participate in or need, but aren’t available for them.

We need your help with completing this survey. We would like to know the programs, activities and services that you want and need, so we can try to provide the programs to make living in the St George area more enjoyable for you and your families.

As appreciation for assisting us, you will have the chance to win one of five $50 Myer gift vouchers, by completing and returning this survey to us by 10th April.

Click here to go to the survey.

You can return the survey by email to glenh@advancediversity.org.au or by post to Advance Diversity Services PO Box 381, Rockdale NSW 2216 or in person to our centre at 552 Princes Hwy, Rockdale.

Thank you for your help.
