Want to know what the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) means for you, how to access it, how to prepare for your planning meeting, or what to do when you get your NDIS plan?

Yooralla is holding free one-on-one NDIS discussions in Flemington to help people with disability and their carers to make the most of the NDIS, no matter what stage of their NDIS journey they are in.

We can explain how the NDIS works, how to access the NDIS, how to prepare for your NDIS planning meeting and if you have your plan how to make the most of it – all in easy to understand language.

This is not a group session which means that you can discuss your personal circumstances in private – as well as have your NDIS questions answered.

“The one to one session was really beneficial because … I was able to ask questions about our son’s needs with a person who was very knowledgeable in the area and took the time to listen and respond.” Heather from Manningham

Location: Flemington Community Centre, 25 Mt Alexander Road, Flemington

Available sessions: 6 sessions per day

Length of session: 45 min

"The information that was shared with me was specific to my child and was less general, unlike larger sessions I’ve been to.” Nicky from Glen Eira

Moonee Valley Memoirists invites all writers to attend this free workshop, as part of our 'Stories from the Suburbs' Program.

Lyndel Caffrey, author, writer, mentor, editor, will direct ‘Writing Childhood’ for writers in general, not just memoirists. The successful recollection of times past, especially the elusive memories of childhood, are a satisfying and deeply meaningful aspect of memoir and autobiography, for writer and reader alike. In this workshop, we will explore and record our earliest recollections with all our senses, using objects which could include photos, old letters, food, TV shows and songs.

Do come along and meet with other writers, to share ideas and skills. Further Information & bookings: Diane Williamson at rdwilliamson@bigpond.com

This workshop is part of an ongoing program, sponsored by Moonee Valley Council. 'Stories from the Suburbs' is a free community writing program organised by Moonee Valley Memoirists and funded by Moonee Valley City Council. Over twelve months, Sam Merrifield Library and Avondale Heights Library will host a series of writing workshops and mentoring sessions with Lyndel Caffrey, award-winning writer, teacher, mentor and manuscript assessor. Lyndel's workshops will be supplemented by regular meetings of the Moonee Valley Memoirists. As well as getting to know other writers and building their creative writing skills, participants will have the opportunity to submit their writing for a Memoir and Local History Anthology to be published and launched in June 2019. This program is open to all. We particularly encourage the many memoirists, life writers, local and family history writers who write about, live in, and work in Moonee Valley.

This year we're excited to celebrate 50 years of our library service!

In 1968, Flemington, Sam Merrifield (then Essendon) and Niddrie libraries opened their doors to the public for the very first time, marking 50 years of operation. This is a wonderful chance for the community to celebrate our libraries’ rich histories and the opportunities they continue to provide people of all ages, from all walks of life.

The three libraries turning 50 in 2018 will each host birthday celebrations which promise plenty of fun for everyone.

Moonee Valley Memoirists invites all writers to attend this free workshop, as part of our 'Stories from the Suburbs' Program.

What is the geography of your story? Do the stories you want to write about follow the course of the Maribyrnong, take place in a high rise housing commission flat, or take us on journeys beyond Australia's shores?

In this workshop, we'll explore time and place in memoir, reflect on how 'real' the backdrop of our story should be, and practice techniques designed to draw the reader deeper into our writing world.

Do come along and meet with other writers, to share ideas and skills. Further Information & bookings: Diane Williamson at rdwilliamson@bigpond.com
