Just for Carers…

Please find attached a flyer for our FREE 24/7 LOVE Carers group starting Friday 7th Oct, in Port Kembla.  This is a collaboration between Relationships Australia’s Ability Groupwork Program and the Sydney Botanic Gardens Community Greening Program.

Each session includes:

  • A little plant that we’ll learn how to propagate herbal teas from – (a different plant / tea each session, which carers can take home and continue to work with).
  • Fun and gentle self-care and self-compassion-mindfulness activities, top tips ‘n tricks for making time for oneself, & connection with other carers.
  • A delicious and healthy lunch.

The sessions are 2 weeks apart – which might make it easier for people to think about commuting if they live in Sydney town or further a-field?

Lifeline’s Out of the Shadows Walk

Create hope this World Suicide Prevention Day.

Join us as we as we walk at sunrise to raise awareness, remember those lost to suicide, and support those who are impacted and continue to struggle with suicide.

Saturday, 10 September

This year’s Out of the Shadows Walk is a very special event for us as we have hoped to hold this event in-person for a number of years – and now we finally can!
 
Most importantly we will be walking in solidarity to support those impacted by suicide; working together to create change and bring suicide out of the darkness and into the light.

Together we can make a difference and send a message of hope to those who are struggling. 

When: 5:45AM, Saturday 10 September 
Where: Wollongong Lighthouse, Flagstaff Hill

Following the walk, we will host a short ceremony to remember those who have been lost to suicide, and share stories of hope. We will have a Lifeline Wellbeing Tent with Ambassadors available, as well as a light breakfast.
