Community Engagement

When knowledge is shared, communities thrive...

We love meeting new people and we love getting out and about within the community.

We want to connect with your community group and find out from you what your needs are and how we might be able to work together to achieve those goals.

Here are just some of the places we have connected with recently, as well as some of the feedback we received about the session.

Such a worthwhile presentation

"Was such a worthwhile presentation for our rehab team, many commented to me afterwards how useful it was and how much they learned."

Real-life examples were used to give context

"[The presenter] took the time to outline the service, the legal implications and framework in relation to what our clients often face. It was interesting and real-life examples were used to give context. She answered questions and was not rushed, spent time needed - excellent."
