PRESENTERS

FAMILY ADVOCACY is an independent and impartial advocacy organisation that works with families across NSW to promote and defend the rights and interests of people who have developmental disability*. The organisation is managed and staffed by parents and allies of people with disability who recognise the issues families face and who can assist in strengthening the advocacy of families.

JAN KRUGER is the Director of Imagine More, based in Canberra. Jan co-founded Imagine More in 2013 to strengthen family leadership and advocacy for people with a disability to get the good things of life. Jan is passionate about working towards the success of inclusive education. Having a 15 year old teenager whom has experienced the ups and downs of inclusive education has taught Jan a lot about how partnering with schools results in the best outcomes for all.
