CRU is coming to Central West Qld in October 2021!

CRU consultants Catherine Laherty and Jo Walters will be visiting towns in Central West Qld during the week of  11th – 15th October. Get in touch if you would like to meet with them in Clermont, Emerald, Barcaldine, Longreach or surrounding towns.

They will be offering a relaxed session on Supporting a Good Life – it’s not ALL about funding! for people with disability and family members, as well as one-on-one and small group conversations at other times. These activities are funded through a grant from the Department of Social Services, so there is no cost to attend or participate.

CRU consultants resource families and individuals with disability through information and conversation, encouragement and ideas for living good lives. Sometimes it’s good to get a fresh perspective! Catherine and Jo would love to talk with people about good and meaningful lives for people with disability – whether that’s about moving out of home, friendships and relationships, getting a job, being included at school, keeping people safe, or some nitty-gritty NDIS topics like the new Individual Living Options or self-management & directly employing workers.

They will generally be driving between towns in the morning and can be flexible around times and locations to meet with you when they get to your town, including in the evenings.

Please get in touch if you would like to know more, or to book in a time. You can email or call our office on 3844 2211, or register your interest using the button below.

There is more information in the flyer (PDF or accessible Word). Please pass it on to people who may be interested and help us spread the word. We are planning to return in 2022, so don’t worry if you can’t catch us this time but let us know you are interested.

While our priority is resourcing people with disability and families, we expect we will have time too to meet with workers and people from organisations too.
