Bendigo SCI Regional Network Meeting - October 2018

31 October, 2018

For the October meeting, the Bendigo SCI Regional Network met at the Borough Club to learn about CVGT’s Disability Employment Services and welcome back returning members of the group. CVGT’s Disability Employment Services is a free program that assists job seekers with a disability to gain and maintain employment. Guest speakers Sophie and Michael from CVGT discussed opportunities they offer including helping participants to realise their career goals, find a suitable job, access education and short courses, and obtain ongoing assistance if one is already working. 

Sophie and Michael also encouraged the group to consider volunteering with the Bendigo Library Volunteer Resource Centre who is always looking for volunteers. Although finding employment was not relevant to all members of the group, everyone still found the information interesting and shared their own experiences with employment. Afterwards, the group enjoyed lunch together while catching up with returning members of the group.

To accommodate other members of the group who want to attend the Network, the group agreed to trial future meeting dates to second Thursday of the month. Please note the date change for November's meeting.
