Belconnen Community Services are hosting a one day workship with world renowned disability advocates John O’Brien & Connie Lyle O’Brien on Tuesday the 30th of July, from 9:00am to 5:00pm, at the Holt Community Centre. The forum will cost $60, however if you are living with disability, or a family member is, you can attend for $20 (which is just to cover food).
They will be leading a discussion on “Does our support of individuals lead to relationships, dignity, choice, real contribution, and inclusion in community life?”
The discussion will be sub-themed with a focus on:
Community Participation: How can we expand and deepen people’s relationships?
Encouraging respect and valued social roles: How can we enhance the reputation people have and increase the number of valued ways people can contribute?
Promoting Choice: How can we support people to have more control and choice in life?
Supporting Contribution: How can we assist and support people to develop more competencies?
