POSTPONED until further notice

Building Safer Communities

Rural communities have more than their fair share of both natural and man-made disasters to cope with, including fires, flood and drought, and our council will work with its townships to help build their resilience when things go wrong.

Building safer communities is the theme of a series of community-led emergency resilience workshops which will be held in the Clare & Gilbert Valleys Council region starting in October 2020.

Funded through the Australian Government’s Drought Communities Program, Council has been pleased offer the workshops in five regional towns.

The series of four workshops began in October and are designed to bring communities together through local connections and networks and create whole community approaches to responding and recovering from emergencies.

It is not vital to attend all sessions in the series.  This second workshop will uncover the current  level of resilience of your town using this tool from the Torrens Resilience Institute click here for the measuring community resilience tool and the following workshops, to be held in February and March next year, will be about developing projects or tasks that could improve your communities ability to prepare for, respond to and recover from  identified areas of need in your communities.

Workshops will be held:

CLARE:  Wednesday 18 Nov, 2020, 7-9pm, Barbara J Long Room, Clare Town Hall.

AUBURN: Thursday 19 Nov, 2020, 7-9pm, Auburn Institute

RIVERTON: Monday 23 Nov, 2020, 7.30-9.30pm, Riverton Community Hall

MANOORA: Tuesday 24 Nov, 2020, 7-9pm, Manoora Hall

STOCKPORT: Thursday 26 Nov, 2020, 7-9pm, Stockport Hall

Emergencies of all kinds impact everyone and have wide-ranging. Varied and complicated impacts which individuals, families and communities must cope with, often for many years.

Community members should consider attending a workshop closest to them – they can make enquiries or book in by calling Council on 8842 6400 or email:
