WHAT ELSE MAKES A LOGAN EAST COMMUNITY CHAMPION SUPPORTER?

Attending and promoting throughout your networks our regular fundraising events including our monthly prize Bingo (third Friday of every month) and our bi-monthly market days (which will be promoted via our facebook & website page) is a great way to support our centre.

We have plants for sale and a 50c trolley with clothes and other items available throughout the week.  We also plan to have specific online fundraising appeals during the year, with our next big one in the lead up to Christmas to support our Christmas hamper program for families in need.

Receipted tax deductible donations of amounts up to $1000 are invited throughout the year here and funds donated will particularly go towards the provision of fresh fruit & vegetables as part of our Emergency Relief Foodbank which assists individuals & families experiencing hardship.

We are here to help, but more than anything, we are here to connect people in to their community, to each other and create the space for them to be empowered and initiate the change they want to see in the world.

WHY WE DO IT

The Logan region is an area of disadvantage, with 53.7% of the postcodes with a Socio-Economic Index for Areas below 5. Logan was identified as a higher risk region for domesic and family violence in the “Not Now, Not Ever” report. Springwood and the region we support is not immune to common community challenges including family breakdown, unemployment, homelessness, alcohol and other drugs dependence, depression and anxiety and debt accrual. We are here to help, but more than anything, we are here to connect people in to their community, to each other and create the space for them to be empowered and initiate the change they want to see in the world.

Our ER and loans programs enable people in financial hardship to get back on their feet. ER clients are often very socially excluded. They report high rates of mental and physical health problems, disabilities, legal difficulties, and often lack of family and community support. Connecting with us is a soft entry into referrals for other support both internally and externally. Our life changing loans schemes allow people to not become victims of the 39 pay-day lenders in the Logan region, that put people into further debt. Our social inclusion and health programs have been initiated by local residents and connect community members in a fun and safe environment. Our Life Skills Education program has been running in various iterations for over 20 years and has quite simply helped change people’s lives. From participants getting their children back, reconnecting with family and friends and making healthier choices, this ten week program is fantastic and highly recommended. We engage parents/carers and young people locally through our various programs and new friendships are formed, skills are learnt and people get inspired.
