Upcoming Events


Friend in Need Workshop (Online) 

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale has joined with Alex Kopp from Anglicare WA to bring you this interactive two hour online workshop which aims to empower people to provide emotional and practical support to a friend in tough times. It develops the knowledge and skills to:

• Recognise when someone is struggling
• Learn how to have a conversation about sensitive topics
• Identify the emotional and practical help that might be needed
• Find and connect to professional supports
• Manage difficult or unplanned responses

This workshop will run in October and registration details will be provided here and on the Shire's What's On Calendar and Facebook page closer to the date.
