Our Life in Community program supports individuals by focusing on building capacity for participants or their family members to create a supportive community network through social connection, inclusion and engagement to enable a sense of belonging and active participation in community life over the long term.

The LinC Smartphone Photography Workshop is an extension of the LinC program and is a workshop open to everyone in the community, providing a safe and creative space for LinC participants and the wider community to come together and learn and create alongside our volunteer photographers. As a volunteer in this program, you would assist in promoting good mental health in the community and create communities that are more accessible, inclusive and supportive for people living with mental health issues and disabilities. The workshop is open to everyone, regardless of skill level – from beginner through to those with more experience.

The LinC Smartphone Photography Workshop provides a safe space for our participants along with members of the wider community to have fun, learn new skills and build social skills and connections. Volunteers and participants in the workshop would be required to bring their own smartphone and access photo apps on their device.

Duties include leading and participating in the group in partnership with other volunteers and assisting participants to learn photo composition, effects and different techniques that will unlock the potential of their smartphone camera and creativity.

Peer volunteers - those with a lived experience of mental illness and recovery - are encouraged to apply
