    Free Volunteer Training - 22nd May - Flemington

    Building Rapport and listening skills – Tuesday 22nd May 9.30-11am This workshop is for anyone working directly with people with disability or older people. The workshop will cover information, tips and practical exercises for building and maintaining rapport with the people. Participants will have the opportunity to learn active listening skills though practical exercises and explore their application through discussion of case studies. Boundary setting and self-care - Tuesday 22nd May 11.30am-1pm When we work one to one with someone it’s important that we understand the boundaries of our role and how to communicate these boundaries to the people we work with. Sometimes it’s hard to say no however it is vital for self-care and so we don’t overstep the responsibilities of our role or burn out. In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to learn about how to set boundaries effectively and information about how to recognise signs of burn out and undertake self-care to prevent it.

    Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon

    Now in it's 20th year, the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon series continues to encourage more Aussie kids to give physical activity a TRY in a fun and rewarding environment. Aussie kids are encouraged to enjoy physical activity where the emphasis is on completion, not competition. Aussie kids will take to the pool, bike and track and then spend the morning in our event village engaging in the fun activities, sports exhibitions and have the chance to meet with our sports ambassadors! We will be needing a bunch of volunteers helping out on the day. If your club is in need of extra funds, bring your team and volunteer with us to earn $27 per head to go into your fund raising!
