We need your help – and it will only take five minutes
For some time now Manjimup parents have had a difficult time trying to juggle work and the care of their school aged children due to the lack of before and after school care available in Manjimup. Often parents are forced to make the hour round trip to Bridgetown or Pemberton to access adequate care for their children before they even set of to work. Effective afterschool programs bring a wide range of benefits to youth, families and communities. Afterschool programs can boost academic performance, reduce risky behaviours, promote physical health, and provide a safe, structured environment for the children of working parents. We now have the opportunity to promote how important our children’s needs are by supporting the YMCA’s recently released Expression of Interest. If we can demonstrate a need, we stand a good chance of bringing Out Of School Care back to Manjimup, run by the YMCA and housed at East Manjimup Primary School (children will not need to attend East Manjimup Primary School to attend).
All we are asking is that you promote the Expression of Interest by asking those you know to please take five minutes to fill it out. The Expression of Interest is attached and responses can easily be emailed to Michael Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WA Child Safety Services in partnership with Parenting Connections WA will be in Northcliffe and Pemberton next week delivering 3 FREE workshops.
Teen Talk Program
These workshops are free for all parents, community members, professionals to attend. Bookings are through eventbrite.
We are very excited and proud to present the Southern Forest Community Services Expo. We have partnered with South Regional TAFE in Bunbury, and APM Employment services, for this unique event, which depending on attendance could possibly become annual. The expo has been run previously in Bunbury and Collie, with great success, and we believe it is an invaluable service that community members from far and wide throughout the southwest will benefit from!
This expo will offer you the opportunity to break down your barriers to personal success, whether it be for Government Services, Employment Pathways, Legal Matters, Fines Enforcement or Banking, we have it all, in this one stop community event. So bring as much Identification as possible; i.e. Passport, Birth Certificate, Driver’s License, and Proof of address to ensure you are provided with the most efficient service possible.
The event will be held at the beautiful new Wellness Centre in Manjimup on Edward Street from 10:00am until 1:30pm on Thursday 29th November. If you have any further enquiries or wish to know more, you can visit our website www.manjimup.crc.net.au or follow us on Facebook.
Alternatively you can give us a call at the CRC and have a chat, on 97 772 774
We hope to see you there!!
Our manager Ranui Harris just wants to shout absolute pride, for her wonderful dedicated staff featuring in three separate articles in the Newspaper this week.

Our beautiful Cheyenne (our newest addition to our team), for her role as coordinator for the Uniting Care Target Appeal and one of our proudest partnerships with the incredible Tracy Lambert and the Vinnies Christmas Appeal making the front page.
We are proud to support the local community and help bring joy to those in need.
As the holidays approach, we start to think more about buying presents, decorating the house, and of course the big Christmas dinner spent surrounded by our loved ones. While the majority of us are looking forward to celebrating, there are people, in our community who are unsure if they will be able to feed their family and pay their bills.
In the true spirit of Christmas, Target and UnitingCare Australia will join together to improve the lives of thousands of Australians struggling during this festive season. Funds raised from their annual Christmas Appeal will help the UnitingCare Network to support its community services and programs nationwide.
With the program now in its 27th year, the appeal has helped hundreds of thousands of families across Australia.
It is easy to contribute in Target stores across Western Australia simply by purchasing an Appeal bauble for $2 or giving an unwrapped gift at your local Target store. Volunteers from the UnitingCare Network will collect donations and distribute them to people and families in need.
UnitingCare West Volunteer Cheyenne Beagley said: “The team at UnitingCare West is thrilled to play even a small part in such an important community campaign and encourage shoppers to donate what they can.”
Target Manjimup this year is aiming to improve on last year’s total of $2000 through even greater community involvement. We have a target of $3000 as our first milestone, but believe the generosity of the Manjimup people could help us reach $5000.
In 2017, the Appeal raised $700,000 nationwide from over 22,000 donations. Helping support over 42,000 Australian families. This year, organisers hope to reach more people who will struggle this Christmas thanks to the generous support from all Australians.
The Target UnitingCare Australia Christmas Appeal runs from 1 November until 24 December 2018.
Target Manjimup is located at 15 Ipsen Street Manjimup.
