What is a microboard?

A Microboard is a small (micro) group of committed family and friends (generally a minimum of 5 people) who join together with the person to create a non-profit society (board). Together, they help the individual:

  • Plan his/her life;
  • Brainstorm ideas;
  • Advocate for what they need;
  • Monitor services and ensure they are safe;
  • Connect to his/her wider community; and
  • Do fun things together.

In the future in Australia Microboards may also play a role in managing funding and delivering the services that the individual needs.

Together you can create services that are creative, flexible and reflect the needs of the individual.

Come and join us for this inspiring two-day workshop where we encourage families, friends and supporters to come along and grow a Microboard community together.
