What. A. Night! ✨

Last Thursday 4 April 2024, we celebrated the launch of our new Peer Mentoring program – a program all about connecting people with disability with those with lived experience, to increase their social connections and community relationships.

We had such a fun night with plenty of games, food, drinks, and most importantly, we had the opportunity to connect and form strong bonds with those in our community 🤗

A massive thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate our launch, as well as Hard Days Night ADL for the awesome venue, Peter from 7 Fold Media for capturing the night, and to our fabulous organisers and Board that made this night happen.

It means the world to us and we’re so excited for what’s to come!

Highlights from the night include;

It’s time to dig out the Christmas decorations and start planning to have some fun this festive season.
Here’s our favourite ways to celebrate:

• Shop at the community markets
• Join in the Christmas carols
• Watch a Christmas parade
• Make some crafts
• Eat some good food
• Be dazzled by Christmas light displays

Christmas activities can get busy and book out quickly, so it pays to be organised, including checking out the transport or parking options to make sure it stays a fun activity!

Here are a couple of tips to help you enjoy the activities;

1. Get to the parades early so you can get a good spot, & don’t forget something a cushion or rug to sit on and some chalk to draw on the road.
2. For the carols, make sure you bring a jacket as it can get cold, plus take something to sit on.
3. Christmas crafts & workshops are a wonderful way to join in the Christmas fun, meet new people and make something special.
4. Share a meal with someone you care about or join in a community cooking class.
5. Community markets are a great spot to purchase something nice for yourself or a loved one, make sure you write a list of who you would like to buy presents for.
6. It can be nice to walk about the streets where the Christmas light displays are, if you drive you may be hurried along, plus the display homes can often give out candy cane lollies!

Ready to join in?

1. Pick an activity or two from the calendar.
2. Make plans to join in the activity & let us know if our peer mentoring program can help make this happen.
