What's On

Activities Still running at LECNA

Our popular and highly recommended programs including our Life Skills program (Thursday mornings for 10 weeks), Men’s Life Skills (Monday evenings for 10 weeks) and our Belief Busters program on Tuesday evenings will still be running moving forward.  Delivery will be online via zoom.  These programs have been demonstrated to have a very positive outcome for all who attend and commit to change.  Life Skills is a unique, transformative program that explores topics such as how the brain functions, communication, relationships, grief and separation.  Belief Busters encourages participants to explore, analyse and remove self-limiting beliefs that are holding them back.  For any of these programs, please contact us to ask questions/express interest on 3808 4529 or admin@lecna.org.au.  We will also be delivering our Skilling Queenslanders for Work program as of 5th May.  More details below.

Our Loans program is very busy and continuing with phone interviews and mediation is still delivered online or via phone for property and family dispute resolution.  Lastly, we are still delivering Emergency Relief Mon to Wed 9 to 10:30am.  People are required to call first and will be informed when we are ready for them.  All appointments will be outside in the courtyard and all social distancing recommendations are required to be followed.  A printed income statement is required.  No community members who are feeling unwell or have been recently overseas or in contact with someone with COVID19 are allowed to attend.

LECNA takes the health and safety of all staff and community members very seriously and appreciates community support regarding the current closure of the center building to the general public.  We are committed to keeping in regular touch with our staff, volunteers, hirers and other stakeholders, during these unprecedented times.  We hope everyone stays safe and stays home.

 Skilling Queenslanders for Work and program start times.  

We are taking Expression’s of Interest for our 3rd block of Certificate 2 in Food Processing:  Skilling  Queenslanders for work program.  This is an excellent course for people who are unemployed and would like to re/upskill into a well-paid industry and get a current in demand job such as baking, food processing and retail.  While this course is normally interactive and hands on, we will begin delivery online for the theory side of the program.  We will then switch to in the kitchen, using social distancing at the end of the program for all participants to complete course requirements.  Please go here for more information.  This block starts on the 5th May and it runs 4 days a week, all except Tuesday.

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.
