Between now and the end of the year, CRU has a number of workshops, seminars and conversations we hope are of interest to you. See below for more information and how to register.
You will find links to each event for information and how you can register and you can also check out the events calendar on our website.
Many of our current events are already booked out, so register early to avoid disappointment. CRU charges fees for our workshops however, some of the workshops below have been subsidised by the government and are being offered at no cost. There is no fee for the Participant Readiness workshops marked in purple as a ‘PR EVENT’.
We will be opening registrations for more NDIS Participant Readiness events in South East Queensland in the coming weeks. Please join our mailing list for any updates.
Securing the Good Life: Developing Safeguards for Vulnerable People
To be human is to be vulnerable. However, people with disability often live with greater vulnerability than others. In an attempt to keep people safe it is possible to limit their lives by being over-protective and so worried about risk that the person has little chance of experiencing the good things of life.
While it may not be possible to eliminate a person’s vulnerabilities, intentional safeguards can assist to minimise or make up for them.
This seminar by Michael Kendrick will highlight the importance of recognising and understanding an individual’s vulnerabilities, as well as explore ways to manage these areas in a positive, life expanding way.
Topics covered will include:
- What do we mean by vulnerabilities?
- How to manage vulnerability without being over-protective
- Common sources of vulnerability for people with disability
- What are intentional safeguards and how do we put these in place?
- Examples of this way of thinking and working
- The role of supporters & organisations
