Event description

Description

How can people with disability enjoy a rich and meaningful life, with a deep level of belonging in their community?

We all want a life that is full of opportunities to live up to our potential and contribute to the community – this is no different for a person with disability. Come along to this workshop and discover how the individual interests of a person with disability can be harnessed to create a life of purpose, identity and the chance to make a genuine contribution.

At this workshop we will explore:

  • How to discover and harness potential, gifts, interests and passions
  • Design socially inclusive pathways
  • Establish and deepen valued roles
  • Create a context for relationship and friendship
  • Learn about the stories of people who are enjoying lives well connected to the community

Who should attend?

This is a practical workshop just for families and friends of a person with disability , including extended family.
