There is a buzz building for the Champions of Change conference and we are pleased to announce the latest confirmed session:
NDIS Championing for Choice and Control
Bill Lawler will take us on a journey with three participants from the launch of the NDIS in the Barwon, Otway and Surf Coast region. We will learn about their experience of determining their eligibility for the scheme, developing their support packages, connecting with service providers, and what it feels like to have choice and control.
My Vote, My Right
Have you ever been told you are not allowed to vote or maybe that you don’t need to vote? If you’re 18 and over and an Australian citizen, you have the same RIGHT to vote as everyone else. Come and hear from representatives from the Victorian Electoral Commission and find out how easy it is to vote and what help is available to make sure you get your voice heard in this year’s State election.
Bully or Victim?
For many self advocates the issue of bullies is one of major concern. In this session members of Dream Theatre will show their video ‘Bully or Victim? The video will be followed by a question and answer about the bully issue and what can be done about it. Self advocates will also talk about the work they have done to raise awareness of the issue.
