January 19th, 2024LGBTIQA+ workshop
A free workshop, produced by Justice Connect, “Preparing for your future: A conversation guide for the LGBTIQA+ community” is specifically designed to encourage older people to engage with the process of future planning.
A facilitator from Justice Connect will expertly lead people through the conversation guide, answer questions and help discuss ideas.
The workshop, on Monday, January 29 at the Daylesford Neighbourhood Centre, is funded by Justice Connect, The Country LGBTIQA+ Inclusion Program – Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health and the Silver Rainbow Social Club – Castlemaine and Hepburn Shire.
Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health spokesperson Belinda Brain said talking about older age was not always easy.
“However planning now means that you take the steps you need so you can live the life you want as you age,” she said.
“People are invited to attend this free 2.5-hour workshop that will help them clarify what matters most to them and help them communicate their wishes and decisions to the people around them.”
The workshop runs from 11am to 2pm and lunch will be provided with RSVPs essential for catering. Register at www.surveymonkey.com/r/PFYFJan29
