Bushfire recovery, Indigenous adult literacy, retraining for older drivers and more: Quest magazine - ALA Member News, July 2019

News

Welcome to our fourth issue of Quest for 2019.

In this issue we've gathered stories about the impact of community-based adult learning programs from around Australia. 

In this issue we profile a community resource centre in the bushfire ravaged town of Yarloop in WA that is playing a lead role in the healing and rebuilding of the community.

We know that low rates of adult literacy go hand in hand with poorer health and wellbeing not just in Australia but around the world. In this issue we interview a researcher exploring how adult literacy programs for Indigenous Australians are affecting individual and community health.

We profile a Wiser Driver course in metropolitan Melbourne that is improving the safety and confidence of older Victorians behind the wheel.

We've also got stories about the Victorian government's recently released Ministerial Statement on Adult Community Education (ACE) and a state-by-state round up of ACE news to round off the year.

You can also read and share individual stories from our current and past issues of Quest through your networks and social media.

I hope you enjoy this latest issue. And thanks for your continuing readership and interest in Quest this year. 

Regards

Gina Perry
