Real World Stories: Reflections on working in locationally disadvantaged communities

Today we launched our book Real World Stories: Reflections on working in locationally disadvantaged communities at Liverpool LIbrary. This book describes projects undertaken as a part of the Centre for Health Equity Training Research & Evaluation’s (CHETRE) Working in Locationally Disadvantaged Communities Course. A PDF version of the book is available here.

We are currently recruiting for the 2012 course through an Expression of Interest (EOI) process. The program trains and supports teams to plan, implement and evaluate a project that aims to improve the wellbeing of people living in a locationally disadvantaged community.

The ‘Learning by Doing’ program consists of 6 training days spread across 2012, mentoring, funding support, site visits and 12-month help desk support from the CHETRE project team.

Four teams will be selected to participate in the 2012 program. Team members may be employees of SWSLHD, SLHD, employees of Human Service Providers including local government, as well as non-government and community based organisations working in the area.

For more information about the course please contact Joan Silk by phone on 9612 0779 or email
