Overview

Who It's For

We’re looking for community leaders and frontline workers who work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, young people, farmers and older people. We also welcome those working or volunteering at youth centres, sporting organisations, YWCA or YMCA branches, PCYC branches, retirement villages, senior citizens clubs, Probus Clubs, farm residents’ associations, Country Womens Association branches, and local Scouts NSW branches.

How We Help

We’ll teach you how to build resilience to natural disasters in individuals, groups and communities and help you to develop a bespoke project plan. We’ll also provide you with ongoing support in the form of mentorship, learning circles and access to resources.

What to Expect

Day one delivers training in disaster cycles and community recovery. Day two supports you to develop a small resilience-building project in your local community. The training includes a light lunch and refreshment on both days.

Natural disasters are becoming more frequent and unpredictable.

These events can have immediate and long-term impacts on the mental health and wellbeing of people in our communities:
Stress
Trauma and grief
Disruption of usual coping strategies
Feeling out of control
Difficulty sleeping
Social withdrawal

After this training, you will:

01
Have a working knowledge of trauma and its effects on individuals and communities
02
Learn how to build wider community resilience, connection, and support
03
Understand the definition, meaning and importance of building resilience
04
Have a roadmap to deliver bespoke community events
05
Gain new professional skills that you can use to help those around you
