Being Curious is a series of presentations from local and national initiatives who are curious about enhancing the lives of diverse populations in the community. This series will engage the listener with projects that will encourage you to get more curious. Once your curiosity is sparked, it will kindle further action to engage with these projects, connect older people from your service to them or even ignite your own ventures.
This is an opportunity to find out more about grass roots ideas which aim to impact the lives of marginalised or vulnerable people by strengthening their capacities physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Friday 3rd April: Disability Royal Commission Counselling Service; Relationships Australia SA
Relationships Australia South Australia is providing free and independent counselling for people engaging with or affected by the Royal Commission into Violence Abuse Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability (Disability Royal Commission), funded by the Australian Government. Counselling and support is available for people with disability, their families, friends, carers and support workers affected by the Disability Royal Commission.
This presentation will be interactive, informative and relaxed involving discussion, brainstorming and problem solving. In a unique way, self-management tools of resilience, mindfulness, empowerment, emotional intelligence, self-efficacy and much more will be presented and their interconnections discussed. These tools are relevant for anyone anywhere. They are the tools that LEAP SA co-founders use every day to cope with changes faced personally and professionally.
Other presentations in the 2020 series include:
• Friday 20 March: Insights into Better Consumer Engagement; The Plug=in (COTA SA)
• Wednesday 29 April: Moving Towards Wellness through Self-Management; LEAP SA

Our role is to support the Aged Services sector in developing the capacity of older people and the workforce which assists them to access their best lives. Our aim is to share information about these organisations and projects because they are striving to enhance the experiences of older people in the community.
It is essential to book in as space will be limited for the Mile End venue. We hope you will be able to log in to view these presentations live or listen later at your convenience.
These sessions will begin at 10am. Grab a coffee and join us in Being Curious!
