Looking for a new home: Mary Wood from On Focus at their fire-damaged office.

Local disability service provider On Focus has been left without an office after a fire in the adjoining holding sheds of a tow truck business made part of their building structurally unsound.

Manager of day services Mary Wood has been doing the rounds of the real estate agents, trying to find a temporary home for their four staff and nine service users.

She has been told repairs will take anywhere from "three to 12 months".

Mary said they are keen to find a facility with wheelchair access and air conditioning that is close to the CBD.

If you know of a suitable premise, phone Mary on 0448 223 531 or email mwood@on-focus.org.
