Conference updates! Who doesn’t like them?

CRU, aka the Community Resource Unit are holding a workshop on the Gold Coast entitled “Self-Direction for Bigger and Better Lives.”

The self directed care workshop will be held on Tuesday March 22 but you’ll need to hurry, as registrations close on Monday March 14.

(If you’re reading this after the March 14 cutoff date you could try contacting Suellen Welch on 3844 2211 to see if spaces are still available)

Here’s a short blurb from CRU :

As you will appreciate, the NDIS represents an opportunity for significant shifts in how people with disabilities will be supported.
A question you may ask is: How we can ensure there is an appropriate shift in the relationships between people with disability and the services that support them?
To help answer this question, CRU is offering Self-Direction for Bigger and Better Lives  at Robina on the Gold Coast on Tuesday March 22  facilitated by Jane Sherwin.
Jane will present a guiding conceptual framework for self-direction that is likely to benefit services, people with disabilities and families. Jane’s warm and interactive presentation style will ensure that this theory comes to life. This will be an opportunity to go beyond surface questions about the NDIS and deepen our understanding of what it means to allow people with disability to direct their own lives.
The workshop is designed to broaden our thinking so that service environments are created where self-direction can be nurtured and sustained so that people with disabilities and their families are able to have greater choice and control over the things that matter to them. This is about ‘big picture’ issues, so the workshop won’t cover the ‘nuts and bolts’ of self-direction (e.g. financial reporting, recruiting staff).
