Come and find out how you can take care of you and your mob.

On Wednesday 10 October, a very special free community event is taking place for Aboriginal people at the NCIE. The Taking Care of Business community day will offer information and practical advice on how to get your affairs in order.

From 10am until 2pm, NSW Trustee & Guardian, along with expert staff from a variety of organisations such as the Public Guardian, Births, Deaths & Marriages, Victim Services, LawAccess NSW, Redfern Community Health Centre, Centrelink, Legal Aid, Energy & Water Ombudsman, NSW Ombudsmand, Uniting Care, St Vincent's and Kurranulla Aboriginal Corporation, will be on hand to provide information and answer questions.

There will also be a special art exhibition featuring young Aboriginal artists from the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience, who created artworks that illustrate the idea of ‘Family: what it means to me’.

Lunchtime talks will start from 12:30pm, covering topics like why making a Will is especially important for Aboriginal people, how to include items of sentimental or cultural value, organising guardianship of their children, as well as decisions about how to include secret knowledge.

People can also pick up a copy of the Taking care of business handbook. The free publication is produced by NSW Trustee & Guardian and is designed to help Aboriginal people plan ahead. It has lots of practical advice about how you can recognise the important people in your life in your planning ahead documents, like a Will, even if they aren’t blood relations—and why It’s important everyone has a Will, Power of Attorney and enduring guardians appointed.

Entry is free and registration is required. Everyone attending will receive a show bag and light refreshments will be available.
