For the past couple of months Lead Advisory Service staff have been keeping a Feedback Register – here are some of the accolades from the Register.

About LEAD Action News

"Doctor-Led Recovery" LEAD Action News [vol 6 no 2] is really useful. Leichhardt Council wants LAS to distribute the newsletter to every doctor in Leichhardt council area;

Lead expert says LEAD Action News for doctors is excellent.

Sadly, LAS has lost the Lead Reference Centre (LRC’s) funding to write LEAD Action News.

About the Boolaroo situation in the Hunter:

Four letters of appreciation were sent by residents to the Lead Reference Centre re: attendance by Elizabeth O’Brien and Michelle Calvert of the Lead Advisory Service at Boolaroo Liaison meeting 1/7/98;

Elizabeth O’Brien and Michelle Calvert of the Lead Advisory Service were congratulated by the council representative for handling the barrage at Liaison meetings;

Elizabeth O’Brien and Michelle Calvert of the Lead Advisory Service & Theresa Gordon of NO-LEAD have given residents valuable assistance;

No-LEAD rep. Theresa Gordon, has done more for Argenton residents than any other local person; (including supplying written information).

Sadly, the Lead Reference Centre has literally decimated funding (reduced it by 90%) for LAS staff to deal with point source communities.

A resident trained & supported by Elizabeth O’Brien in fighting a demolition case, was extremely helpful to another resident, who has in turn helped a third woman with similar problems.

Elizabeth O’Brien at The LEAD Group's volunteer telephone service helped the caller a great deal in 1993. He's glad we're now funded and still helping tenants with lead problems.

LRC told that they have spent their money well by funding LAS (see Andrew See’s letter below);

ABC announcer Dr Karl Kruszelnicki applauds Elizabeth O’Brien for developing a huge body of intellectual property re: leaded petrol;

The talk Michelle Calvert gave at the Cremorne Early Childhood Health Centre (ECHC) has been "raved about and caused a great deal of interest even weeks later. Fascinating information";

According to one lead poisoned police shooting instructor, Michelle Calvert has been "one of the few people to give lead-poisoned police helpful information. The blokes were very appreciative." [See the later section Talks, Conferences and Seminars.]

Sadly, LRC has cut LAS funding by 27% over the year, during the 2nd quarter of the financial year.

Accolades for Others

Penny from LRC was also helpful [to the police].

One Sydney lead assessor only refers clients to Walter Heim for paint stripping and Penlington paint contractor because they've always done good work.

Shaun the Builder, in Sydney, is capable of listening to his clients and carrying out building and clean-up work in a lead-safe way. He cleaned up after a ceiling collapsed 2 yrs ago. [As such, this is the only positive report we have heard about a working builder.]

A woman in Newcastle who rang Pollution Line for Lead Safe Factsheets was very happy to then receive the Renovator's Guide (unsolicited, when it was freshly published) which she says is fantastic.
