CRU creates videos that tell stories and share insights that can further inspire the community living movement and the broader disability sector at large. These videos assist people to share their stories, ideas and wisdom, whether that be as part of a presentation they are doing, or for the broader public.
CRU creates most of its films in house and where appropriate these videos are showcased in our YouTube channel. We also work with other organisations to create films that showcase the valued perspectives of our community and many of these can be seen in the collections below.
This event was filmed by Community Resource Unit Ltd. (CRU) at a joint event held with Children and Young People with Disability Australia (CYDA) at Common Ground on the 18th February 2020.
This event discussed the Disability Royal Commission (DRC), its interest in education of children with disability and how people can share their stories with the Royal Commission.
CYDA has created a workbook to assist families as they prepare submissions around education. Download the workbook here (MS Word). They also have created some factsheets which can be viewed on their website.
There are additional links to useful websites in the descriptions of each video.
In collaboration with the National Alliance of Capacity Building Organisations (NACBO), of which CRU is a founding member, CRU developed two films that explored self-managed arrangements from the perspective of support workers.
These videos are from footage taken our our "New Opportunities for a Good Life: Experiences from NDIS Trial Sites" events. These one day forums, held in Toowoomba, Brisbane, Rockhampton and Hervey Bay showcased stories by and about people with disabilities and their families who have been involved in various NDIS trial sites from across Australia.
The ‘Agency Transformation’ events held throughout October were designed to assist managers and other key decision makers to think through the core requirements for authentic service transformation so that services would be individually tailored and designed to assist people with a disability to live better lives.
Together in Partnership: Stories of individual and family governed organisations in Queensland was a DVD created by the Community Resource Unit in 2013. It features three Queensland organisations, Lifestyle Options Incorporated, Homes West Association and Kalpana.
