Strengthening Disability Advocacy Conference 2018: Doing disability differently
September 7 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm$165.00
It’s an election year in Victoria. This conference is a platform to let our politicians know about what needs to change for people with disability. It’s time to celebrate diversity and showcase a range of perspectives while keeping a keen focus on what needs to change.
Although many specialist disability services are funded through the NDIS, the NDIS approach is to maximise participants’ access to mainstream programs. How do community organisations learn how to be more inclusive? And what are the barriers preventing full participation of people with disability? Basically, the answer is attitudes. Changing attitudes is difficult. It requires consistent and targeted campaigns.
This conference is for anyone who is interested in strengthening and upholding the rights of people with disability.
