Event Details

When and Where

Thursday 31st May, 2018, 9.30 am - 4.30 pm.

Kathleen Syme Centre, 251 Faraday Street, Carlton, VIC

What is this Workshop about?

Often our conversations and planning with people who have a disability and others who have needs focuses on what people can’t do or finding “services” for people rather than how a person could contribute to their community. This workshop aims to assist facilitators and planners to enhance their skills and engage in deeper conversations about assisting people to pursue valued roles in the community. Topics covered in this workshop include:

  • Disrupting patterns of thinking and resistance,

  • Creating vision,

  • Embracing diversity, values and community,

  • Exploring valued roles,

  • Bringing life to meetings,

  • Doing work that matters,

  • Getting unstuck, and

  • Connecting people and ideas.

Who is this Workshop for?

This workshop would be of interest to those who facilitate Circles of Support, team meetings or planning meetings that aim to increase the inclusion of people who might be marginalised from the community e.g. people with a disabil- ity, people who have a mental illness, people who are aging etc.

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.
