Schedule of eight 2-day Hope and Healing by Design workshops announced

On 16 March, a call was sent out to ALL providers of residential care services across the State for expressions of interest in participating in a ‘Hope and Healing by Design’ workshop. The 2-day workshops will be held in eight locations – Ipswich (5-6 April), Hervey Bay (11-12 April), Cairns (20-21 April), Brisbane North (27-28 April), Townsville (3-4 May), Rockhampton (10-11 May), Beenleigh (18-19) and Sunshine Coast (24-25 May).

This includes grant funded residential care, CRC-PaS funded services, therapeutic residential care, Safe Houses and supported independent living services.
