Barefoot Preparedness [POSTPONED]
Are you and your service prepared if your community is impacted by emergency or disaster? How would your clients manage if you had to shut your doors because you and your service are directly impacted?
Research indicates that most community organisations in Australia are not prepared for the potential impacts of disaster on their service operations. It makes sense to start planning for how you will continue to deliver vital services to your clients in the aftermath of disasters. Planning for disaster resilience doesn’t have to be complex or overwhelming. It can be realistic, sustainable and doable.
This workshop will provide community service managers and workers with the essential tools to start planning for a disaster-resilient service.
- Increased knowledge and understanding of the role of community organisations in disaster preparedness and recovery;
- Increased knowledge and understanding of the potential impacts of disaster events on core service operations and service delivery;
- Increased skills in disaster resilience planning for their organisation and local sector, and
- Increased capacity to collaboratively design and plan community resilience interventions and activities.
REGISTER NOW! PLACES ARE STRICTLY LIMITED TO ENSURE THAT YOU EXPERIENCE A HIGH LEVEL OF ENGAGEMENT AND INTERACTIVITY.
