Celebrating the energy and diversity of Fairfield City and its communities
In celebration of Harmony Day, we invited visitors to take a selfie with our Harmony Day selfie frame and welcomed all visitors to our stall to leave their handprint on Woodville’s canvas – a symbol of inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.
Fairfield’s diversity was on display with wonderful cultural performances, music and food.
A big thank you to our dedicated staff who donated their time to attend to our stall – Steven, Nargis and Karisha.
It’s all about fun and accessing the best Sydney has to offer such as museums, festivals and events, cinemas, golf, swimming and much more.
Call Mike on 9722 5200 to book a spot today!
2017 dates for Together Linking Carers meetings are now available for you to add to your diary.
If you haven’t attended a meeting like this before, then now is the time to start.
It’s a group run by carers, for carers, so it’s all about you and what you want to discuss. It’s also about caring for carers.
The next meeting is on Wednesday 19 April from 6.30-7.30pm

We had discussions about strong women who had had major influences in our lives, the value of women and how we could all play a part in helping drive better outcomes for women. In other words: women supporting women!
#BeBoldForChange was a major topic of discussion and women in the room discussed what it all means to them. The lunch gathering ended on a sweet note with handmade purple cupcakes, made by our very own Strong Minds Team Manager.
Last Friday night we held the first ever FRIDAY NIGHT DISCO!
It was a great night enjoyed by all, with lots of dancing, singing and catching up with friends.
We hope to see you all there at the next Disco!
It was also an opportunity to farewell Suzanne.
We wish her all the best and know that we were very lucky to have her as part of the Woodville Alliance disAbility Services team.
Stay tuned for the next Disco date – please let us know if you are interested by calling Karisha on 9722 5200.

You will also be kept up-to-date with other events and activities.
Support for a person they care for is typically the first priority of carers, according to Carers NSW. But what about the carers themselves? Our disAbility Services team asked our families what they wanted and this is what they said…
For some people, it is a case of analysis paralysis – too much choice, which becomes a burden. With so much information available, knowing where to access it can be overwhelming.
Families told us they wanted a way to meet others going through similar experiences to them. So we helped to make it happen. We organised NDIS Workshops, so carers of people with a disability who attend our programs could get the facts they needed about the NDIS…and meet other families.
A disAbility Services parent runs TLC, with support from Woodville Alliance. The group may grow in the future, to include alternative meeting times and locations, but for now, TLC meets monthly.
The next meeting is on Wednesday 15 March from 6.30-7.30pm

We’ve welcomed new people to our support services — people who want choice and flexibility in disability supports…people who want extended hours and support options for families.
We’re investing time in supporting people transitioning to our service options. We are also adding new services and choices for living the life you want.
Our disAbility Services staff are a passionate bunch who go the extra mile… to support you to live the life you want.
If you want to talk to one of us about what we can do to support you with your NDIS funding, you can call us on 9722 5222.
An online booking system for disability support services is in the making at Woodville Alliance.
Keep an eye on our website for updates as they happen.

The six dancers have reflected on their idea of ‘home’ during the Dance Diaries project. Throughout the project, the Disability Services dancers have enjoyed the involvement of their families, who are an important part of the project.
Choreographer Linda Luke is the creative driving force behind Dance Diaries, along with film maker Martin Fox and sound designer, Michael Toisuta. Linda has established a great connection with the dancers thanks to a previous creative partnership the dancers were involved with in 2015, Being Moved.
The experience of working with the six dancers is wonderfully expressed in a blog post written by Linda, where she talks about what she learnt and valued most about the process.
Dance Diaries has been a journey that has involved months of workshops, film shoots, rehearsals and discoveries.
It is through projects like this one that Woodville Alliance supports clients of our Disability Services program to access their community, express themselves, experience something new, perform in front of an audience and work together

Traditional foods were at the centre of celebrations this week for Lunar New Year— the Year of the Rooster.
With Sydney’s Chinese New Year Festival one of the biggest celebrations of Lunar New Year outside of Asia, Woodville Alliance had our very own slice of Lunar New Year, with a gathering at our Head Office.
Woodville serves and celebrates the diverse communities of Western Sydney, one of the most ethnically diverse communities in Australia, which is why we don’t need much of an excuse to celebrate cultural events!
Happy Lunar New Year!
