January Newsletter

Dear Satellite supporters and friends,

It’s the end of January, and this is our first newsletter for 2023. Welcome back and we hope that you had a safe, happy and healthy holiday. We are very excited to share all the wonderful things happening in the Satellite space in the coming month, so be sure to check out our calendar and join in as many events, workshops and activities as you would like. We would also like to acknowledge how challenging this time is for First Nations communities and recognise that we are living, working, and creating on stolen lands.

As always – stay connected, be creative and keep well ?

With thanks,
Rose and the Satellite team

Live gig: Music for Mental Health!

News from our Friends

Level Up!

Level UP is a six-month youth-led, dynamic and flexible program that allows Young Adult Carers aged 18-25 the opportunity to focus on themselves and their future goals! It is a rolling intake so you can choose the sessions you would like to attend over a six-month period.

Level UP is specifically designed by Young Carers for Young Carers between 18-25 years old. It is a program that is aimed to make a positive impact on your life and help you transition into adulthood which can often be a challenging period. The program focuses on three core pillars: social, skills and self.
