What is this Workshop about?

There still exists considerable concern that although people with a disability are physically present in our communities, they’re still disconnected and living lonely lives of isolation and segregation (Shut Out Report, 2009). Although we may hold the goal for more inclusive lives for people with a disability, we’re often unsure how to go about it! This workshop is a learning event for those who are serious about exploring and discovering opportunities for welcome, contribution and connection that are abound within our communities for people with a disability.

Topics covered in this workshop:

  • Belonging and social inclusion—What is it and why is it important?

  • Possible dis-connectors and connectors!

  • Building a context for a full, meaningful and inclusive life,

  • Discovering and harnessing potential, gifts, interests and passions,

  • The importance of typical pathways and valued roles,

  • The art of asking,

  • Making the most out of community,

  • Practical strategies that enhance, enable and strengthen belonging, connection and relationships,

  • Facing struggles and challenges with creativity, and

  • Sharing stories.

Who is this Workshop for?

  1. People with a disability, family members, support workers and others interested in developing socially inclusive lives for people with a disability and other marginalised people. It would be of particular interest to families who have sons/daughters leaving school and are seeking more typical and inclusive pathways.

Belonging Matters

Belonging Matters is a small not for profit community education and advisory service developed by families who have a passion for social inclusion! We are people friendly and value driven. On this web site you will find a range of useful resources that aim to inspire and build the knowledge of people with a disability, their families and allies to enable people with a disability to have opportunities and pathways typical of other citizens in the community - lives that are personally fulfilling, unique, socially inclusive and empowering.
