Scam prevention and RediPlan forums in July


Jubilee Community Care has a couple of informative and educational forums coming up in mid-July. The forums, which aim to make life easier and safer for our clients and members of the public, are free so invite your neighbours and friends along.

The first, in partnership with the Australian Red Cross, will give people the chance to learn about preparing for emergency weather events. The second, featuring Acting Senior Sergeant Jose Sarmiento, will focus on common scams and how to protect yourself against them. Both come after a very successful forum in April hosted by Jubilee on home safety and security.

EmergencyRedi forum – Thursday, July 11 at 10.30am to 11.15am at Toowong Library, Toowong Village, Toowong. RSVP by July 4:
Participants learn about the practical, psychological and social steps they can take to prepare for emergencies and minimise the impacts of a natural disaster. The workshops are interactive and include real examples and anecdotes, and activities focused on practical ways you can prepare for emergencies.
Topics covered include what emergency preparedness is and why it is important; preparing mentally for emergencies; how to assess your own risks and capacities; how to prepare your household for an emergency; guidance on completing your own emergency RediPlan; and other ways you can take action to prepare yourself, your household and your community.
Participants receive a RediPlan booklet which provides an easy-to-follow set of actions to help you plan for emergencies. Refreshments will be supplied.

Scams forum – Monday, July 15 at 11.30am to 1pm at St Andrew’s Anglican Church, 89 Fairley St, Indooroopilly. RSVP by July 8:
Acting Senior Sergeant Jose Sarmiento, guest speaker at our previous home security forum, will talk about the clever tricks scammers use to try and get your personal details and passwords in a bid to access your money. The different scams people might come across, how to identify them and what to do if you get caught out by scammers will also be covered. Includes tea, coffee and biscuits.

RSVPs to both forums are essential so register your place today. Phone Jubilee on 3871 3220 or email as soon as possible.
