Employment webinars

The Shire has engaged award winning career coach Alison Bannister to deliver a series of online webinars around a range of employment related topics including disability employment tips. A new webinar is released each month from September 2021 until June 2022 and each release is available for six months. You can watch all the webinars by clicking the image below.

Webinars have the advantage of being able to be watched as many times as you like, paused when you need to, and watched at a time of day or night that suits your schedule. Set your own pace and volume and if you would like a copy of the slides to read please contact the Shire on or 9526 1111.

Dementia Awareness Resources

In Australia, limited awareness of dementia in people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds often results in delayed diagnosis, poorer prognosis, and a higher burden of care on families and health systems.

Moving Pictures, an innovative multi-media project, aims to change this through the production of short films co-produced with people from CALD backgrounds. The Moving Pictures team has so far produced 27 short films in 9 different linguistic communities. For each language, there are three films: Detection and Diagnosis, Navigating Care, and the Carer Journey. The Moving Pictures films are based on the stories and lived experiences of carers of people living with dementia, and the expert views of key service providers, all videos feature subtitles in English. 

In addition to the short films, the team has developed comics to complement the films. The Moving Pictures comics are available on-line, but can also be ordered free of charge directly from the Moving Pictures website using the order form

Videos and comics are available in the following languages: 

عربى Arabic                     廣東話 Cantonese                     Ελληνικά Greek                     हिंदी Hindi                     Italiano Italian       
普通话 Mandarin           Español Spanish                       தமிழ் Tamil                          Tiếng Việt Vietnamese
