The Baabayn Aboriginal Corporation is a group formed by five Women Directors who live and work voluntarily in the Community of Mt Druitt. The Group hosts a social gathering every Tuesday for the Community at the Holy Family Centre, in Emerton. On Tuesdays the Community comes together, shares a meal and has a yarn, meets with service providers (counsellors, health professionals, Legal Aid, Centrelink and others), and undertakes art and craft activities, which are seen to be culturally restorative and genuinely therapeutic.
WSCF has been working with the Women and other partners to initiate pilot project to transport the Women and people from their community to attend the Tuesday group.
Please join us for a complementary Member Breakfast, hosted by Western Sydney Community Forum.
The Community Sector is changing and we are inviting workers to come together to talk about what they think needs to be done differently to enhance the work they do on. More importantly, how WSCF can be part of that change and how we can get there together. This is the last member's breakfast in the series so make sure you register if you want to provide feedback to WSCF about how you think we can support the community sector moving forward.
This is a networking opportunity to engage with WSCF and come together as community service workers from different areas and organisations in Western Sydney. This engagement morning is part of a series of community worker conversations that WSCF is hosting to talk about the resources, support and changes you believe are needed to fruther enhance the work you do in your local area in times of change.
WSCF Submission re CHSP Transport Fees- click here
Setting fares for transport services can be tricky. WSCF has prepared a response to the Commonwealth Support Program National Fees Policy Consultation Paper.
WSCF feedback in this submission essentially places the transport consumer’s perspective as central to the community transport fare setting process. How community transport services are priced will also impact on consumers who are using alternative modes of transport or have no access to other service types.
The ‘interests of consumers’ may be interpreted in our submission to mean the lowest possible fares in light of an increased quality of service and increased diversity and scope in community transport.
