Speaker invitations are going out

The theme for 2017’s Strengthening Disability Advocacy Conference is ‘Getting into Gear for the NDIS journey’.

This conference will begin with a keynote address presenting an overview of the NDIS, setting the scene before the first panel takes stock of the road already travelled. We will look back and see how far we have come.

The second panel will look at how we can assert our human rights in the NDIS and investigate how well the framework is fitting into the NDIS system. It will also look at how effective the processes are in dealing with situations that go wrong.

The final session will look to the future of advocacy in the NDIS, identify the potholes ahead and how best to smooth these out or avoid them all together.

The planning committee have had some fruitful brain storming sessions and invitations have started going out to potential speakers, facilitators and panellists.

We look forward to keeping you up to date as confirmations come through.
