Exchange Peer to Peer - Circles of Support

Thursday, 26 September 2019

The idea of an active support network is really an old idea in our society.

For people with disabilities, Circles of Support are an idea and practice that has been around for over 25 years. It is not a service or program but rather a group of committed people who are intentionally invited to come together in friendship and support of a person with disability, for the purpose of achieving their goals and protecting their interests into the future.

Self Direction

Self-managing NDIS funding and directing one’s own supports is a very empowering way to have control and work towards the good things in life. However, people may be discouraged thinking that self-management is a difficult process.

What you always needed to know about intellectual impairment, but were mostly never told

Tuesday, 29 October 2019 at 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

About the workshop: Often we speak about focusing on the ‘ordinary’ and ‘typical’ ways and means to help people have access to the good things of life. However, it’s also necessary to understand and appreciate how intellectual impairment can affect people in very real ways.

Participants will gain greater insight into the challenges that people face in their daily lives, as well as gaining an appreciation of how easily others misunderstand and mistreat people with an intellectual disability. The workshop will equip participants in practical ways by offering four windows to look through as a way of understanding people’s needs and how best to respond to meet those needs.
