Workplace experiences in Cairns:
Choice and the Aborigines and Torres Strait Islander Youth Welfare Corporation and Kapani have developed relationships with the 3 Workforce Australia providers funded in Cairns to deliver workplace experiences for their registered individuals. These activities will significantly improve the job readiness of the individuals and assist them to transition from poverty and despair and a relationship with Centrelink to the open employment marketplace.
Flood Disaster Recovery, Preparation and Mitigation:
Choice and the Aborigines and Torres Strait Islander Youth Welfare Corporation and Kapani are working through the process with traditional owner involvement, and elder groups and community members and community based organisations and local businessess to share our individual and collective experiences in natural and economic and other disaster recovery and preparation and mitigation with a focus on developing capacity within community members and within communities to be better prepared from experience and too be a formal and integral part of the natural disaster preparation, mitigation and recovery industry.
We work alongside Kapani (an ex services company) to jointly develop projects that support people who have been disconnected and displaced and unemployed by natural disaster and or people who have experienced unplanned hardship and or disadvantage with a focus on breaking the cycle of disadvantage and or despair.
