Community Volunteering and Mentoring

Volunteering can make a difference in your life and the lives of others. BCR are hosting a FREE community volunteering and mentoring program in early October. We want to help you and our community to build capacity and resilience and support people that are interested in becoming involved (but maybe aren’t sure how) and those currently volunteering and looking to learn new skills, expand their networks and create a mindset to support our community into a resilient future. To register or for course information email or go to https://www.resilientbywongwamboin.net/join.

Resilience Podcast Series

Over the coming months we will be partnering with local people, emergency services personnel, not for profit organisations and QPRC to speak on a range of topics helpful to those living in Bywong and Wamboin. The series looks to open up new sources of information, views, opinions and ideas as we share stories, wisdom and encouragement.
