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.
He’s confident, he’s happy and he’s part of the class. Building relationships for successful inclusion.
We have produced this 25 minute video because when a student’s behaviour is catching everyone’s attention, school inclusion can become very fragile. It is distressing for everyone, and unhelpful patterns can get established, including the student becoming isolated, stigmatized, punished and excluded. We are sharing this story because we believe that every child can thrive in an inclusive classroom with the right supports.
This video shares one family’s vision – their belief in their son and his potential, and an unwavering conviction in his inclusion. It shares how the school team – a skilled and committed classroom teacher, a creative and collaborative specialist educator, a dedicated school Principal and leader, and other key staff – worked together to figure things out.
Most importantly this is the story of Nathan and his success as a valued, integral member of his year 4 class.

This video was created by CRU through our Families For Inclusive Education Project. This project is proudly supported by the Queensland Government through the Department of Education.
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.
