Surviving the heat

Now that we are coming into summer and the weather is heating up regularly, it’s important to remember to look after yourself in the heat especially when the forecast is for temperatures of more than 40 degrees.

Heat kills more Australians than any natural disaster, and while heat related illnesses can affect anyone, pregnant women, people with a pre-existing medical condition, people aged over 65 and children and babies are most at risk.

Be sure to plan ahead, drink plenty of water and stay somewhere cool. Also check in on your older neighbours, and never leave kids or pets in hot cars.

International Day of People with Disability

Celebrate International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) with us on 3 December.
IDPwD aims to increase awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability. It’s a day to celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disability.
This year’s theme for International Day of People with Disability is about creating conversations to challenge common perceptions of disability and help create a more inclusive Australia.
We can work together to see all abilities and create an inclusive Australia.


Be Connected

Ouyen Neighbourhood have established a partnership with the Good Things Foundation to deliver the Be Connected program.  The Be Connected program aims to increase the confidence, skills and online safety of older Australians when they use the internet.  Some older Australians haven’t had much opportunity with the internet and this can often leave them feeling isolated from their community and family at a time in their lives when feeling connected is increasingly important. Be Connected helps older Australians to realise the value of being connected online and provide access to appropriate training and support in a safe and familiar environment.

Be Connected also includes a learning portal, which includes a range of free courses and resources to help older Australians improve their skills, this can be accessed from your own PC, tablet or phone.

In addition to the $2,000 start-up funding, Ouyen Neighbourhood House was recently successful in receiving $5,000 to purchase a set of iPads and data packages through the Digital Devices Grant.  Five iPads are available for loan on a fortnightly basis from Neighbourhood House, which also includes instructions designed to be easy to follow and phone support by appointment. The Be Connected program is available to any community members interested in learning the basics of internet access or those wishing to upskill and build confidence. For more information on Be Connected or to express interest in trialling one of our new iPads call Kim Darley, Neighbourhood House Coordinator 0419 371 445
