Event description

Description

Each year the entire Community Service team at Northside invite their colleagues in the sector to join them in an event we like to call the Big Day Out. The day focuses on professional development and critical reflection for a sector that doesn’t usually get the chance to take a breath and recognise the exceptional “whole of society” outcomes they contribute to on a daily basis.

In the morning we have the Courageous Practice Sessions that focus on what we have achieved as a team and the values that drive us organizationally and individually.

From 11am we are joined for by our sector colleagues and partner agency team for a look at Housing First models and how we work towards ending homelessness in the ACT. This year we will be joined by the courageous Felicity Reynolds, CEO of Mercy Foundation as one of our keynote speakers. We are also thrilled to be joined by the exceptional Travis Gilbert, Executive Officer for ACT Shelter for a “State of the Nation | State of the ACT” discussion.

After lunch we move into the Exceptional People Sessions where we hear from our team about the client stories that have resonated with them over the year. These stories are followed by a session in which the insightful Dr Thomas Nielson, Associate Professor UC, discusses how service to others and the act of giving increases wellbeing.

It is set to be a stellar day and we look forward to seeing you all there.

You will notice that there are two types of tickets:

Full day tickets for the Northside team

Housing First Session tickets for the section of the day when colleagues from various partner agencies join us.

Please note that partner agencies and sector friends are welcome to join us for the whole day however please be advised the sessions at the beginning and end of the day are focused quite heavily on Northside specific workshopping and reflection.
