Connect Well East Gippsland and Wellington is focused on working together to improve mental health and wellbeing outcomes for people in our region. We know we have a better chance of improving access to services or supports for people if we work as a partnership.
Connect Well East Gippsland + Wellington (formerly known as the ‘Outer Gippsland Area Drought/Bushfire Mental Health and Wellbeing Partnership’ is extremely proud to be involved in www.beyondthefire.tv
Beyond the Fire is a seven-part documentary series sharing stories of Australia’s unsung heroes as they band together to create life from the ashes after the Australian Black Summer Bushfire Crisis. Set against the stunning backdrop of Gippsland, each episode journeys through fire affected locations, connecting with local heroes to share courageous stories of overcoming heat, wind & flames.
In early 2021, Wurruk Community House’s Manager, Sarah Bardsley, approached the local TAFE Gippsland Horticultural Team, requesting their support with designing and developing a much-needed community garden, and was greeted with a resounding “Yes!”.
Now that restrictions have eased for the most part, it’s a great time to get active again. For smaller communities around Gippsland, that can mean popping down to a Men’s Shed and seeing what’s happening.
