FREE COMMUNITY WORKSHOP

Knowledge and experience can improve how we react and respond to crisis situations. This FREE half-day workshop is designed to increase resilience for individuals, communities, and organisations in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from crises and disasters.

Why should communities lead the way in recovery after a disaster or crisis event?

How can I support my family, friends and community during tough times?

How does the Australian disaster management system work?

What are the psychological effects of going through a disaster – for me, my family and friends, and my community?

These questions will shape this FREE, half-day day community workshop in Cooktown.
