Volunteer Social Support Craft and Computer Classes
The Volunteer Social Support Craft and Computer Classes are for Carers and Care Recipients registered at Carers NT. There are no entry criteria to join the classes. Participants are invited to come along and learn some new skills.
The main objective of the craft class is to enjoy making different craft products, to build confidence and obtain social interaction. The facilitator likes to add a theme to the craft classes in line with other events happening in that month.
The objectives of the computer classes are to develop confidence and self-esteem among participants, to build awareness of risks associated with online activities, to provide participants with the opportunity to raise their skills for employment and lastly to provide the opportunity to connect with social media and the group itself to reduce the social isolation.
Transport to the craft and computer classes can be organized, however please note that preference will be given to people with a disability. A gold coin donation is appreciated when participating in the craft class. For the computer class, participants are encouraged to bring their own devices like an iPad, Notebook (laptop) or tablet as the Volunteer Program has limited devices at its disposal.
Craft and Computer classes are each run once per month on the weekend. Themes and dates are in the 2017 Calendar of Activities. Individual flyers are sent to regular participants in advance of each event so you are encouraged to get in touch with the Volunteer Coordinator if you would like to be added to the mailing list.
