Natural Disaster Resilient Community Organisations

6 February 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

How quickly could your organisation ‘bounce back’ after a major disaster?

How would you support your vulnerable clients if your own building was damaged, electricity and communications down and roads impassable?

Learn how to benchmark your organisation’s resilience and identify the actions you need to take to ensure your clients get the support they need, even after a ‘worst case scenario’.

This one-day workshop will take you through the Australian Council of Social Service online Resilient Community Organisations resources, including the Bench marking Tool
and the ‘6 Steps to Resilience’ Tool. The workshop will be delivered by Stuart Reid from the WA Council of Social Service. As well as being a lively and engaging workshop facilitator,
Stuart is a veteran of Darwin’s Cyclone Tracy so he has some first-hand experience as well.

This is one of a series being run around WA as a result of a Natural Disaster Resilience Program Grant. As a result, the workshop will be provided at the very low price of $25
which will go to cover some of the local costs. Tea and coffee on arrival, morning tea and lunch provided.

Please note if you are a volunteer-run or a very small organisation, training can be provided at no cost. If you require free registration, please contact WACOSS directly at [email protected].
