Thanks - I was looking for activity workshops. Yes we do mostly inhouse and online - lots of oh&s atm.

Thanks Solange, I'll work on those ratios, this is a huge help. I like the idea of having a 10% buffer too! I can always use that up at Xmas time. Great suggestion.
Geez $250 is pretty tight!!!!

We made Christmas decorations for our centre tree - the complexity of the activity matched the skills of the residents. That way everyone contributed.

Professional development
DRTA members are encouraged to do 15points of PD each year (to maintain membership, and with the purpose of elevating recognition and respect for the profession). But this is for membership - not compiles to the profession. I know We do internal training at work (online modules to keep us up to date with changes to the organisation etc)

Does anyone have to participate in accredited training each year? What training do you do?

Hi all! I'll be stepping into a new role Coordinator position next year. I would love some advice on managing budgets. Am worried as this is very new to me and I would appreciate a crash course, and welcome your feedback! I am a little embarrassed to ask this!
As a guide what portion of your budget would you allocate to entertainment, outings (lunch) and activities (music, dance, craft)?
My budget will be allocated in monthly blocks, however as our residence is growing should I divide the amount by per person, or allocate each activity a set amount ?
Thank you kind friends - love this site!
