OC Connections

MR DIMOPOULOS — A couple of weeks ago I was very pleased to open the official historical exhibition of OC Connections, formerly the Oakleigh Centre. This amazing local organisation has been providing support and accommodation to people from my community who have an intellectual disability since 1950. It is an organisation formed from the community — from parents and other local people with a passion for helping others. I am pleased to say OC Connections is as strong as it ever was. What a history it has. It is very inspiring to see how the Oakleigh Centre, now OC Connections, has transformed the lives of so many people over nearly 70 years. The exhibition is at the Oakleigh and District Historical Society at the Monash Federation Centre until 20 April.
