A wonderful group of 19 members of the Tamil and Malaysian communities participated in a workshop on elder rights at the Canning River Eco Education Centre on Tuesday.

A huge thanks to Anbumoly Kuppusamy from the Ethnic Communities Council of WA for hosting the workshop as part of our CaLD Elder Rights project with Legal Aid WA.

There was positive feedback from the participants who told us they found the session very valuable and had learned so much about the different types of elder abuse and the support services available.

We also loved hearing their cultural perspectives and personal views on the topic, which will help the WA State Government ensure its educational and intervention programs are culturally appropriate going forward.

Excellent opportunity for Educational day, it would of been. Great work 👏

We were delighted to run a workshop for 30 seniors last Friday at the Indian Community Centre in Willetton.

Together we explored the concept of elder rights and the types of elder abuse, as well as options for advice and support, as part of our CaLD Elder Rights project in partnership with Legal Aid WA.

Thank you to community champion Renu Sharma from Indian Society of WA (ISWA) for hosting us and being our interpreter.

Elder Rights WA manager Shabnum Rashid summed it up beautifully with these words:

"It was so exciting to see such a wonderfully large and engaged group of Indian community members, and hear and share their stories and cultural perspectives around such an important, albeit sensitive, topic. Inspiring is the word that comes to mind."

Last week, we met with two amazing women to discuss future opportunities for Umbrella's engagement with the Iranian community in the Perth metro area.

Academic Hajar Ziaeefar is studying for her Masters in Population Health at Edith Cowan University and Nasrin Marmarchi co-facilitated one of our recent workshops as part of our CaLD elder rights project with Legal Aid WA.

Both are local community champions who are passionate about issues affecting migrant families, youth and seniors.

This week's WA Digital Inclusion Project topic is LinkedIn.

LinkedIn is a business networking and employment social media platform, accessible through both a website and a mobile app.

It facilitates two-way communication, enabling employers to connect with potential employees.

LinkedIn serves as a platform for professionals to connect and for employers to advertise vacancies. It acts as a powerful tool, bridging the corporate world, while promoting business and development opportunities.

For guidance on using LinkedIn and its mobile application, visit: ow.ly/324750SmWMX

A shout-out to our incredible care finder team whose work has been recognised in an article on the WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) website.

WAPHA manages the care finder program in Western Australia with funding from the Australian Department of Health and Aged Care.

The program assists vulnerable seniors without family support to access the aged care and health services they need through one-on-one support and referrals.

Our team was acknowledged for assisting an 86-year-old client with mobility challenges and no family support, who was living in concerning conditions due to hoarding tendencies.

Our team was able to locate a volunteer beekeeper to remove a bee infestation near her home and coordinated with local authorities and other community organisations to improve her living conditions.

Great work! My dad would have had no chance to figure out the home aged care system by himself. The most difficult part for us was all the income tested fee stuff and how to incorporate the polish pension into the application

Amazing team work! Proud of my wife 😻

The BEST team! We'll done ❤️

Did you know that in 2022 the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare - AIHW found that 11% of Australians experience Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in their lifetimes?

On 27 June every year, we honour PTSD Awareness Day, shedding light on a mental health condition that profoundly affects lives.

The anxiety and fear stemming from PTSD can overshadow daily life for sufferers. Originally associated with returning war veterans, PTSD diagnoses have expanded over decades to include civilians who have endured traumatic events, leaving lasting emotional scars.
