Description

NDS and VALID are holding free forums about human rights, safety and preventing abuse and neglect of people with disability to continue to spread the message that abuse and neglect is NOT OK!

The forums are designed to assist people with disability and their support staff to identify abuse and neglect, know about good practice in services, and understand how to prevent abuse and neglect from happening.

Session 1: ‘Staying Safe’ - VALID

This engaging and accessible and workshop draws on VALID’s Staying Safe training program for people with disability, Speak Up, Reach Out and Get Help’. It explains different types of abuse. Support staff are also encouraged to attend

Session 2: ‘Understanding Abuse’ - NDS

This interactive session based on NDS’s Understanding Abuse e-learning is aimed at frontline workers, supervisors and team leaders. Using video stories and group reflection, participants encouraged to will engage in a conversation about why abuse happens and using the Zero Tolerance resources to support the empowerment of people they support.

Session 3; Restrictive Practices Panel Discussion/ Q&A

This session will investigate current legislation and practices around Restrictive practices, followed by a panel discussion with representatives from the government, disability organisations and from persons with lived experience.

Please advise as to any accessibility requirements when registering for this event so that these adjustments are made to ensure accessibility for all attendees at this event.
