National Talkblack 180621

We had:

Matthew Clarke, CEO of Yilabara Solutions, talking about how Yilabara Solutions are recruiting 250 Indigenous jobs to help boost the disability workforce. Aboriginal employment service, Yilabara Solutions, was selected by Apprenticeship Careers Australia to assist in recruitment, accreditation and training of Aboriginal workers while providing a culturally sound service. “We’re putting together a highly skilled Aboriginal team of staff that is able to strongly support and mentor Aboriginal people looking to work in this important sector,” Mr Clarke said.

Senior Sergeant Glen De Lai from Edmonton Police, talking about Road Safety Week. Queensland Road Safety Week provides an opportunity to raise this critical public health issue and encourage the community to do what they can to keep themselves and others safe on our roads. This year we’ve had more people killed on Australian roads, particularly on roads in Queensland, than any time over the previous 10 years. Queensland to date – 174 deaths on roads including 12 lives lost on Far North Queensland roads so far this year. While cars were becoming safer and roads improved, fatalities continue to occur at and unacceptable rate. If we truly want to reduce the road death toll, drivers need to change their driving behaviours.
