Community Resources for real people

 

-          What is the purpose of the Life Resources Centre?

The Life Resources Centre is an Incorporated Association controlled by Queanbeyan Baptist Church, created to facilitate community development initiatives in our local community.  In its history it has conducted :-

-         Suicide Prevention Intervention programs

-         Suicide Prevention Education courses

-         Professional Counselling Services (in Queanbeyan, the ACT and on the South Coast of NSW)

-         And created Community Gardens, as a vehicle for mentoring young people

-         Facilitated a large interagency meeting known as the “Community Support Forum” to foster strong networks and working cooperation between agencies within the city.

 

 

 

 

We work closely alongside many agencies (both NGO’s and government based organizations) and have auspiced a number of projects on behalf of interagency groups in the Queanbeyan Community.

At present LRC is involved in two major projects, which routinely require us to use these connections to obtain appropriate support for peoples needs, and to receive referrals from those agencies for people whom we are equipped to help

-         Nurturing Womanhood

Nurturing Womanhood is a self esteem building program for women (and their pre school age children, where applicable) who may be facing difficulties from a range of different sources.  The program primarily involves beauty and self care activities, as well as folk art and craft activities, and is supported by a child care program.
