Do you think Volunteering Rocks?
We do, so thanks from a little help from our friends, we are joining with organisations across Australia to celebrate National Volunteering Week.
We are pleased to invite you, our members, friends and allies to join with us on:
Sunday May 27th 12.30 till 2.30pm
Come along and help us celebrate with our volunteers and enjoy a free lunch.
RSVP by phone/email by Friday 25th May for catering purpose.
Listen to a short presentation on Volunteering by our vice chairperson, Lyn Mahboub , and find out how you could get involved as a Recovery Rocks Community Volunteer.
We wish to thank and acknowledge that Volunteering WA and Lotterywest have provided funding towards a grant for Recovery Rocks Community to put on this event during National Volunteering Week.
As Recovery Rocks Community Inc. is slowly growing, the Management Committee has found the need to review some of our current systems. Within this review, it was determined that our current Postal Address was not sustainable; and have determined that we needed to change from our previous address.
We would like to advise everyone that our new postal address is:
RECOVERY ROCKS COMMUNITY INC.
PO Box 11
Kwinana WA, 6966
We are currently in the process of updating these details within our processes.
We would appreciate your patience and attention to this change as we finalise this process.
The Recovery Rocks Community Inc (RRCi) is pleased to offer an exciting 5 day training course called ‘LISTENING DIFFERENTLY’, and is based on the principles of Intentional Peer Support.
Intentional Peer Support is a way of thinking about and inviting transformative relationships. Practitioners learn to use relationships to see things from new angles, develop greater awareness of personal and relational patterns, and support and challenge each other in trying new things
This training is open to all members (New membership applications welcome), whom fulfill our current application criteria.
This course shall be held on the 14th – 15th June, and 19th – 21st June
For more details about this exciting event, how to apply, and the important dates relating to applications, please see our ‘Events’ page or click on the link below.
RRCi is also pleased to announce we have updated our site and included a ‘Volunteers’ page; another avenue people in our community can to support, further develop our community and be active community participants.
We encourage everyone to read about the different ways people can volunteer with us and learn more about our ‘Onboarding Process’; to introduce our new volunteers to our organisation and create a better understanding of our values and purpose, and also the gain necessary knowledge and skills required in the volunteer roles.

Our Weekly Support Group has moved to a new day!
Previously, our support groups were held on every Monday, but have now been changed to every Thursday (same time and venue), from the 8th February 2018. Please check out our Support Group page here for more details.
Also don’t forget our Recovery Rocks Community Networking Event & AGM is just around the corner on Sunday February 25th, 2018 at 1.30pm. For more details see our events page here. It’s a great opportunity to see what Recovery Rocks Community Inc. has been doing in 2017, meet up with fellow peers and update your membership details (if needed).
This update also includes some information about some changes to our site. We have added a new ‘Publications’ section in the menu, where you can not only download our current and past newsletters but also download our past AGM Reports. These reports are not only important documents for members to feel assured the organisation has been managed with their best interests in sight. They are also a valuable historical documentation, to show how much our community has grown since it was first incorporated in 2014. I hope you have as much fun seeing our growth (and maybe reminiscing in the past) as I did when I went back and read them.
