SKILL is a FREE series of 6 capacity releasing workshops being run by JFA Purple Orange in Mount Gambier during March, April and May 2021. Please register for each event that you would like to attend.

The SKILL workshops are for people living with disability, family members and their allies. We recommend that to achieve the best outcomes you should attend all 6 workshops.

These are in-depth all day practical workshops that run from 9:00am to 3:00pm, and morning tea, coffee and lunch is provided.

The workshops have been co-designed by people living with disability for people living with disability, and are funded through an NDIA Information, Linkages and Capacity Building grant. The facilitators of the workshop are Jennifer Job from Life Upcycled and Cherie Rowett from Heart Choice Enterprises.
