Tea Tree Gully council – Whats on in Our Community

6 Mar 2013 iProperty Network 0 Comment

Aged, Family, Carer and Disability Services

Aged Services

Introduction

With the exception of higher numbers of 0-17year olds, population projections in the City of Tea Tree Gully show a marked ageing of the population over the next thirty years that is broadly consistent with national trends. Older Australians are expected to become more diverse in terms of their care needs, preferences, incomes and wealth.

This will have important implications for the qualitative aspects of aged care services (such as the range of services needed and the flexibility of service delivery) and the cost of these services.

We continue to have an important role to play in the lives of our older residents, providing services, acting as an advocate or as policy maker and partner organisation to other government and non-government services. Our belief is that older people’s quality of life is not only dependent upon their health, but also on their housing options, income, transport, a feeling of security and their links and sense of belonging to the broader community.

Walking in Tea Tree Gully

Why walk?

Woman walkingNo matter what age, we all need regular physical activity for good physical and mental health. It is recommended that adults include at least 30 minutes or more of moderate intensity physical activity on most, if not all days of the week.

Walking is a great way to be active. It is:

  • Simple – no instructors or membership needed
  • Inexpensive – no special equipment involved
  • Achievable – can be done nearly anywhere, anytime
  • Easy – just get up and walk

When you go for a walk it’s not just your body that benefits, the way you think and feel changes too. The world looks better and brighter.

For more information about the benefits of walking, visit: www.sahealth.sa.gov.au/beactive and www.juststartwalking.com.au

Heart Foundation Walking

Heart Foundation Walking is part of a broader Heart Foundation agenda to encourage and support walking and physical activity as a fun, free and accessible physical activity option. As part of the Healthy Communities Initiative, we are encouraging more people to join a Heart Foundation Walking Group, or why not start a group of your own?

To find a Heart Foundation Group near you, please visit the Heart Foundation Walking website or call the Healthy Communities Initiative team on 8397 7396 or email.

Volunteers

Community Bus

Introduction

The City of Tea of Tea Tree Gully is a vibrant community and we support volunteer involvement in a range of community based programs.

We recognise that volunteers play an important role in the provision of services to the community and we value their contribution. Volunteering is a great way to engage with others in a meaningful way, meet new people and develop or enhance skills.

The Council’s volunteer program provides important services such as transport, library and support services, including Justice of the Peace, graffiti removal and dog obedience, to name a few.

How to apply for a volunteer role

To express an interest in volunteering with Council please complete our online registration form.  You will be contacted by the Volunteer Coordinator  within two working days to discuss your application and we will advise you of the next step.  Completion of a registration form does not automatically guarantee a volunteer position at Council.  Also, there may not be a suitable vacancy or any vacancies at the time of your application.   However, if your application is accepted you may be given the opportunity to be placed on a wait list for a specific role, if you wish. We’ll let you know if this is appropriate.

The Process

All applicants will be required to attend an interview with the Volunteer Coordinator to identify skills, experience, qualifications and suitability.

Successful applicants will be asked to undertake a national criminal check prior to being accepted and every three years thereafter.  All volunteers are required to attend a Council induction and relevant mandatory training, as well as program specific orientation and training.  We will provide this information and assist you in this process.

Volunteers will be supported on an ongoing basis with regular volunteer team meetings, and ongoing refresher training or task specific training.  Volunteer programs and positions are reviewed on a regular basis and may be subject to change as required.

Please read the Volunteer Frequently Asked Questions page to assist you with any queries you might have.

Get the Drift

On Monday 13 February 2012, 300 high school students gathered at the Adelaide Festival Centre to learn how to cope with life’s challenges.

Get the Drift was hosted by the Eastern Region Alliance – consisting of the Cities of Tea Tree Gully, Burnside, Campbelltown, Norwood Payneham St Peters, Prospect, Unley and the Town of Walkerville – in association with the Green Room, the Adelaide Festival Centre Youth Arts membership program.

Students from Years 8-10 from 11 high schools took part in a number of workshops designed to help them learn how to deal with the pressures of being a teenager.

Workshops were presented by a range of youth, education and health service providers, and covered topics such as safe partying, cultural awareness, driver safety, relaxation, healthy relationships, body image and fitness.

Key note speakers this year included City of Prospect Mayor David O’ Loughlin and Young South Australian of the year Khadija Gbla.

This was the fourth time Get the Drift has been offered and helped address a number of strategies identified in the Eastern Region Youth Action Plan.
