Regional instructor training - Murray Bridge

Strength for Life Manager Sophie was thrilled to be able to visit Murray Bridge last weekend and provide training to Instructors who will be joining our network under the Integrated Murraylands Physical Activity Committee project.

Conversations can lead to great things!

Over the past few weeks Strength for Life has been out and about in the community, engaging in conversations with many CALD leaders and agencies, introducing and co designing the wonderful Strength for Life Program so that it is tailored to each community's needs. We have been in great conversations with CALD leaders from:

  • The Bhutanese Community
  • The Australian Refugee Association
  • Bene Aged Care
  • Australian Migrant Resource Centre in Murray Bridge
  • Southern CALD network
  • Australia Donna
  • The Filippino Community in the Riverland

Each conversation leads us closer to planting the seed that will lead to more and more older South Australians from CALD backgrounds participating in Strength for Life and reaping the program's amazing benefits to their health and wellbeing.
