Coming Events

June 2 - Moving Conversations:

Online Event, 7-8:30pm (AEST)
We all feel lonely at one point or another.  
With COVID19 making it even harder to connect with others, our next conversation on “Loneliness” is so timely.

Our aim is always to make it easier to learn from each other – in a gentle and kind environment – and build confidence in ourselves to deal with issues that life throws our way.

In response to announcements regarding the relaxing of restrictions around COVID-19, the CBBC team recognises that we are entering another liminal (in between) space. We acknowledge that just because restrictions are easing, this does not limit the emotional, mental, physical, or financial burden that many have been experiencing. We continue to encourage all friends of the centre, wherever you find yourself, to continue in optimistic caution. Optimism, because it has been shown that as we look out for each other we can better navigate crises. And caution because as we re-enter spaces we will be connecting with people who have experienced and are still experiencing trauma that we are not aware of. As a team we continue to be committed to walk this journey together and with you. Please join us as we plan and think about what our communities can become post COVID-19.
