Three Pillars Seminar - Healthy Living
This seminar series focuses on each of our core focus areas; education, financial stability and healthy living and how complex issues around these topics present in our society. These events aim to ignite a conversation, increase understanding of these issues and how they affect life in WA, and educate on what we can do together to improve quality of life for our whole community.
“The variety of speakers, variety of approaches and mindsets to different issues…leaving the event a little more educated and informed”
Pillar Three: Healthy Living
Good health is vital to a happy and empowered life, however for some of our community’s most vulnerable citizens the barriers to achieving health goals can appear insurmountable.
In this seminar we discuss the issues faced by people leaving homelessness behind and what reintegrating back into community and everyday life really looks like. Without specialised supports and programs, simply gaining a stable place to sleep does not increase long term health outcomes or happiness.
Join us for an insightful discussion with our panel of industry experts and special guests talking about their experiences transitioning back into home life. Together we can empower the lives of those who need it the most.
