STATE HEALTH AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
The QCWA has long been focused on improving the health and wellbeing of women across Queensland. Our objective is simple, to improve the welfare of the lives of women and their families, especially in Regional, Rural and Remote communities. In one such way we achieve this is through our Health Awareness programs.
Originally taking root through our State External Appeal, each year a state wide program would be nominated and Branches across Queensland would fundraise to raise money to support their good work. This has incorporated many charities over the years including Mater Children’s Hospital Sleep Unit, RFDS and Queensland Melanoma Project to name a few.
During our Annual Non-Conference Council a motion was passed that rather than QCWA focusing solely on fundraising for donations, we need to do more in communities to bring awareness to our chosen appeal. From this, Branches and Divisions are now encouraged to facilitate meetings, seminars, events and other such occasions where guest speakers and professionals linked to the program provide informative talks and build awareness in the local communities across Queensland.
COUNTRY KITCHENS SUPPORT RESOURCES
The Country Kitchens Team have created a resource to support branches when they are hosting a Health Awareness Event. The Event may range from a morning tea, showcase, presentation at Branch or Division level or guest speakers. This resource has been designed to provide some helpful recipes, handouts and flip card activity that you can select from. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
