Description

Come and join our April Planning Cafe to learn how you can create your own dream team of support.

Learn ways to develop a positive team culture, some tips to make it less scary to attract and keep good staff and have an opportunity to discuss the all important questions: “what should my support person wear” and “how do I introduce my support person when we are out together?”.

This Planning Cafe is being run by the fabulous Carolyn Campbell-McLean who has been successfully recruiting and self-managing her own team of support workers for many years.
With a professional background in social work, Carolyn worked for 12 years in state government, taught disability studies, and was a research associate on the first evaluation of individualised funding in NSW in 2008.

Since then Carolyn has been supporting people with disability and the sector to prepare for change in her roles as a:

  • Living Life My Way Champion,

  • Senior Facilitator at My Choice Matters’ leadership program,

  • Client Services Coordinator at Muscular Dystrophy NSW, and

  • Community Connector with the Physical Disability Council NSW

  • Lead Facilitator with the Team Up Project - Peers Creating Change across NSW

Currently working on a variety of projects in the peer support, support planning and training space, Carolyn is well known for her networking and ability to relate to any audience. A proud Aunty and papercrafts enthusiast, Carolyn combines her lifelong lived experience of physical disability with a strong knowledge of self-management and empowerment tools for people with disability.

For people with disability and family members.
