Description

*Registration at 9.30am

The NEMA Cross-Sector Community of Practice is inviting organisations from the Disability, Mental Health, Aged Care and other community service sectors to attend a morning workshop on Journeys Towards Achieving Choice.

The purpose of this workshop is to explore approaches that provide pathways to achieve individuals' journey of choice. The aim of the morning is to promote ways that assist organisations to achieve consumer-directed practices that empower individuals to exercise choice and control.

Presentations on the day will include:

  • A Case Study of Transformation: Ann-Maree Davis from Amicus will share how her organisation transformed from a traditional centre-based Day Service to deliver individualised supports within the community.
  • The Philosophy behind the Practice - Les Cope, President of Ability Dignity Access Management (ADAM Inc.) will share how his experience as a carer shaped his current service practice.
  • Personal Accounts of Consumer Choice - Self-advocates will share their positive and negative experiences of engaging with service providers, highlighting the ways organisations can be responsive to and supportive of individuals' needs.

This workshop is a great opportunity to learn how your organisation can continue its journey of transformation to being truly consumer-focused, and celebrate what you have achieved so far during this transition period.

This venue is wheelchair accessible. Please contact the organiser directly with any accessibilty requirements.
