Community Wellbeing 

Drought Relief Workshops extended to June 2010

These workshops are all free and take place in our own community.  Most people who have attended the workshops to date have learnt something of real value in understanding human behaviour. If you are hesitant in attending a workshop please talk to someone about them, chances are they've been to one and can tell you how good it was.  If you missed out, workshops can be repeated with a minimum of 10 participants.


‘SQUARE' Launch - Huge!

Thank you to all those people who were able to attend this very significant workshop.  We had 30 people attend from our community which was fantastic! These people have walked away Braver, Stronger, and Wiser. This ‘SQUARE' program is an initiative of the Nangiloc/Colignan & District Community Plan and will contribute to the community's goal of instigating a "Look out for Your Neighbours" program. This ‘SQUARE' launch will be followed up with the development of a "Pathway to Care" plan for our community.  Attendees - stay tuned.
