A groundbreaking new study is set to be carried out in a bid to develop a set of best practice guidelines for crisis care and suicide prevention.
LifeSpan, an evidence-based approach to suicide prevention developed by the Black Dog Institute and the Centre for Research Excellence in Suicide Prevention, is calling on people with professional or lived experience of suicide or self-harm to participate in the survey.
Utility Literacy Workshops - February and March 2017
Do you work with people who struggle to pay their utility bills, who have high energy consumption or are unsure about what kind of contract they have with their energy supplier? You might be a financial counsellor or housing officer, a case manager in mental health or working in emergency relief - hardship as we know cuts right across our sector.
UCWB delivers innovative training in utilities literacy to the community services sector in South Australia. We have designed a set of five half-day modular-based workshops:
- Decoding bills and reading meters
- Contracts and getting a better deal
- Calculating running costs, energy and water efficiency
- Hardship, concessions and assistance
- New technologies and tariff reform
The workshops will be offered at Bowden in February and March 2017. If you wish to register (yourself, colleagues, volunteers…) for any of the training modules, just click on the date(s) of your choice on the calendar. While the sessions are complementary, they can be attended as stand-alone workshops.
UCWB delivers training state-wide so if you would like to host a session, please get in touch with us to discuss options. Sessions can be tailored to your needs. To find out more contact Stephen Graham or Heather Merran on 8245 7148 or
