Finding My Place: Toowoomba

October 10, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

Overview                 

This one day forum shares stories by and about people with disabilities who have taken their place in their community.

People share their experience of moving into their own homes; having jobs; following their passions and contributing to their community.

The forum continues on from recent “Taking Charge of Change: What do we need to be ready for the NDIS?” workshops. Participants will be inspired and encouraged to think about what is possible in the context of self-direction and the NDIS.

The presenters who live with disability and the people who support them will share their thinking and down to earth strategies they have used to get started and keep going. There will be speakers from the local area and further afield.

Themes covered will include:

  • Living in a home of one’s own
  • Self-direction & self-management
  • Building natural supports 
  • Contributing to community 
  • Employment
  • Working it out one person at a time

A light lunch will be provided.
