What's On

LECNA Community Update

We hope people are going ok and breathing a sigh of relief as schools returned.  What a crazy year it has been so far!  LECNA is looking forward to supporting people through the community recovery following the coronavirus crisis.  We have been pleased to see some of our volunteers return and their be a buzz in the center again.  Please check out our latest newsletter here.

Our popular and highly recommended programs including our Life Skills program (Thursday mornings for 10 weeks) and Belief Busters program (Tuesday evenings) have been delivered online this term, but are looking to returning to face to face delivery for Term 3.  Please call us if you are interested in joining either of these program:  3808 4529.  More info on our Programs page.  Sadly, our Men’s Life Skills program was funded through a grant, which is due to finish at the end of this term.  The faciltator was delivering one on one this term.  Our Skilling Queenslanders for Work program has been at capacity.  We continue to find work experience placement a challenge in this environment, as business start to boot back up.  Please contact Gillian on 3808 4529 if you are from a local business who would be interested in taking on Cert 2 in Food Processing students for work experience, this can include cleaning work if needed.

We have counsellors available Monday and Tuesday by appointment.  We are planning to do tax help onsite, please call to enquire.  KRANK for the June/July holidays at LECNA has been cancelled.

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.

As we approach the end of the financial year, we welcome any donations to our center to support us to deliver all that we do here.  People are welcome to make a tax-deductible donation at:  https://www.givenow.com.au/lecna

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.

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.
