Logan Together connects with community at NAIDOC family fun day

The newly established Logan Together team was among community-based organisations participating in Logan City's NAIDOC family fun day at Logan Gardens on 8 July 2015.

The free event was hosted by Ganyjuu Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporation for Family Support Services, with support from government agencies, non-government organisations and businesses. The day highlighted the range of organisations providing services to Logan City's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, as well as showcasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures across the city.

Logan Together was part of the Logan City Council stall, which featured fun activities for children and information about community services and library programs.

The Logan Together team took the opportunity to share information with the community about the ground-breaking Logan Together initiative, which aims to improve the health and wellbeing of every child in Logan aged birth to eight years.

More than 300 people visited the stall throughout the day to make NAIDOC themed badges and apple slinkies and talk to Council and Logan Together staff.

NAIDOC Week is held annually in the first full week of July and celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements. This year's national theme being 'We all Stand on Sacred Ground: Learn, Respect and Celebrate'.

The 2015 event was one of the largest to date, with over 50 stalls embracing the opportunity to interact with community members at the coal face and for the community to be acquainted with the many local services available in our community.
