Breathless Web Series – #NoMoreButts

Breathless Web Series

A stylised web series based on common themes explored through community consultations

Jamal is worried about his younger brother Adel. Adel is a smoker who ignores Jamal’s efforts to get him to attend social support group sessions to quit smoking. Finally, Jamal hands Adel a pamphlet that explains in Arabic the impact of smoking and how to get help to kick the habit.

Kenny’s grandmother has lung cancer, but she has never smoked. Kenny learns that passive smoking by breathing in second-hand smoke from smokers can seriously affect family members or those nearby. He takes steps to quit smoking.

Tam says she is not really a smoker because she only smokes when she is stressed out or nervous. A counsellor tells Tam there is no such thing as ‘safe smoking’ and that smoking during pregnancy can affect the health of a baby. Tam explores her options for quitting.

Tips to keep safe this Christmas

Happy Holidays! Be sure to keep safe this season!

Some tips if you are traveling this holiday season
1. Keep all doors and windows locked! 🏡
2. Have a family member or friend attend to your house to keep your home looking occupied and collect mail. 📬
3. Turn off your main water supply. Leaks happen. 🚿
4. Unplug all electronics. Yep, even if they’re not on, your electronics are energy vampires. 💡
5. Don’t leave a hide-a-key.🔑
6. If you are gone for a while, have someone mow the lawn/shovel the driveway
7. Don’t leave spare keys out (This counts for car keys)
8. Keep your social media limited to your “holiday posts”, burglars are now using social media to identify those who are on holiday and target them. (Your geotagging at home snaps will enable them to locate you at your residence)

We hope you stay safe and have a lot of laughter and love this holiday season!

What is a home care package?

A home care package is a coordinated package of care and services to help you to live independently in your own home for as long as you can. Some people receive services through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) and are then assessed for a home care package. Others will start with a home care package.

As we celebrate the new year of 2019, we reflect back on the achievements of the last 40 years of CORE Community Services.

What started as a centre to help migrants and refugees learn English, culminated into a number of service offerings and now stands as CORE Community Services. An organisation that delivers services within 5 key areas, Aged and Disability, Children Services, Community Engagement, Multicultural Communities and  Youth Services

Each service delivers a number of programs, events and services to better our communities of South West Sydney.

We hope this year, to achieve better and greater things, we have a multitude of new programs and projects we are working with and cannot wait to share this with you.

Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence is a global issue.

We at CORE Community Services believe in delivering the message, stopping domestic violence through the work we do. One of our key specialist services is the ability to provide support to victims of domestic violence, but also to perpetrators. This means, we will be able to being the counselling process and also work with the victims and perpetrators on a case management level to see them through their goals and support them in becoming.

Convening the South West Sydney Domestic and Family Violence Conference each year has been a great achievement for us, as a community service. We are able to work with our community partners; deliver an event to support the local organisations, to better understand and provide best practice responses to victims of domestic violence.

We understand Domestic Violence is a human rights issue and does not discriminate regardless of a person’s gender, culture, religion, education, and socio-economic status

Our Specialist Domestic & Family Integrated Service is available for Fairfield City Local Government Area residents, a confidential service.

Preschool : Acknowledgement to Country

Acknowledgment to Country is essential to us all, to pay respect to the fact that one is on Aboriginal land. 

In this week’s blog we are zoning into Preschool and their use of the acknowledgement to country before playtime.

Here is a little snippet of what Preschool has been up to. They are learning to reciting the acknowledgement to country, which not only gives them insight to Aboriginal culture

The Early Years Learning Framework which is the national standard of education for pre-schoolers advocates for all children to be meaningfully connected with and contribute to their world, to not only have a positive sense of self-identity, but also to experience respectful and responsive relationships with other people and places alike.
