A RIVERLAND-BASED program, which aims
to lessen the impact of poverty in the local
community, will appear in an online database
launched last week.
The database raises awareness of the work local
government is doing to support communities
and reduce the impacts of poverty, and features a
District Council of Loxton Waikerie program.
Local Government Association president David
O'Loughlin said the local council's program to
make new technology available to older residents
through its iPad for seniors initiative assisted in
the prevention of social isolation for older people.
"Councils offer a vast array of programs to miti-
gate poverty," he said.
"Some councils run food co-operatives and
encourage the development of local and commu-
nity gardens and others provide assistance, with
other agencies, for people living in squalor or
those suffering from mental health issues."
