Event Details

How can people with disability develop the same kinds of freely-given relationships and connections to the community that most people enjoy?

Many people with disability live their lives surrounded by services or paid staff, with few relationships beyond their families. Having friendships and a community around us is an essential part of a fulfilling life, and also provides a safeguard for the future.

Join this workshop to:

Explore ways to build context to relationships
Discover how to turn everyday situations into moments of possibility
Learn how to initiate an “ask” or “invitation” to engagement
Learn about strategies such as circles of support
Build a community around a person to safeguard their life
Hear real-life stories and examples
You’ll also gain clarity about the most crucial role of the supporter: being a bridge to community and relationship.

Who is this workshop for?

Anyone who wants people with disability to experience a full and rich life. This includes people with disability, their families, friends, allies, support team and community members.
