Skilling Queenslanders for Work

LECNA is excited to be delivering for the first time:  Certificate 2 in Food Processing, a 12 week program set to support people to find secure employment in a local growth industry.  This will be a hands on opportunity to also gain your RSA licence and barista certification.  If you are unemployed or returning to the workforce and a resident of Queensland, this could be the opportunity you are looking for.  The first block starts on the 16th September.  If this sounds good to you, please express interest in this program by calling us on 3808 4529 for more information.

Welcoming Seniors Project

Thanks to a Logan City Council:  Community Projects Grant, LECNA is delivering a Welcoming Seniors Project to welcome the new seniors who have moved into the accommodation services around Springwood.  This project will deliver a resource booklet, with up to date information on local services and programs for seniors and a couple of awesome morning teas, connecting people with each other and other local services.  We will also be connecting locals with seniors that have a unique skill to share through a series of 6 workshops.  We are seeking seniors who are over 65, with a unique skill to share:  Crafting, cooking, woodworks, singing, gardening…whatever it might be, we would love to hear from you.  We will pay you $60 and supply all resources (within reason) to deliver the workshop.  Our next morning tea is during seniors week:  Monday 19th August from 9:30 to 11:30am and workshops are on upcoming Thursdays.  For more information and to check out dates/times, please go to our facebook page here.

Life Skills Program

LIFE SKILLS PROGRAM –
We run 4 x 10 week programs per year – the course and subsequent support is designed for people to attend at any time during the course with the option to register for the next intake.  Please feel free to contact us if you would like to join our current course or to register for the next intake which commences on the 17th of January, 2019.

Logan is a region that experiences extremely high socio-economic disadvantage including unemployment, homelessness and youth disengagement. It was recently identified in the “Not Now, Not Ever” report as a high risk region for domestic and family violence. At Logan East Community Neighbourhood Centre we work hard to meet the needs of our whole community from babies to the elderly. We particularly support community members in crisis or experiencing transitions and change in their lives.

Our Life Skills Program has helped thousands of Logan residents alleviate the things leading them to unhappiness including;

(a) uncomfortable/unhappy with their family relationships e.g. with their children, life-partners, their own parents, siblings;

(b) having difficulties arising from excessive emotional responses (e.g. anxiety and anger);

(c) unhappy with their relationships in the community (e.g. with their children’s school, the Dept. of Child Safety; Centrelink, the Family Law Courts).

Irrespective of their formal educational background, the program and course have been found to have the potential to help people who are seeking to manage their lives in the face of a wide range of social issues including; overly stressful parenting; domestic violence; child neglect and abuse; family separation; the impact of depression, anxiety and other mental health issues; addiction and substance abuse by self and/or family members.
