Evening Discussion for Brothers and Sisters

October 17, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Family members have a natural authority in each other’s lives. This can seem obvious for parents of a person with a disability, but what does it mean for siblings?



About the evening:

This informally facilitated evening discussion will be an opportunity for brothers and sisters to discuss the natural authority of families and consider what is ‘family business’ and what is ‘service business’. These things can help siblings be clearer in getting the foundations right for succession.

The session will include dinner and opportunities for conversation with other brothers and sisters.

CRU Consultants Catherine Laherty and Jen Mouritz will facilitate the discussion. Catherine has one brother (of three) who has a disability, and most of her work at CRU has been around NDIS participant readiness with people with disability and their families. Jen also worked on CRU’s participant readiness project, and has over 10 years’ experience in working with families in self-directed arrangements.

Who Should Attend:

This evening conversation is for adult brothers and sisters who want to support a good life for their family member with disability.

**RSVP by Thursday 11th October 2018 ** Numbers are limited **

Please note that this event is only for siblings who have a family member with a disability.

Need some assistance with fees?

CRU has some capacity to reduce registration fees and assist with other costs, particularly for people with disability and family members not sponsored by an organisation. Contact CRU for more information.
