In October 2013 self advocacy group members attended a forum and decided to set up the Victorian Self Advocacy Network or VSAN. At the forum they also decided to set up a start-up committee to begin doing all of the work needed to set up the VSAN. The members of the VSAN committee are Colin Hiscoe (Reinforce), Susan Arthur (Powerful Parents Self Advocacy Group), Luke Nelson (VALID), and Christian Astorian (Diversity and Disability). The committee has been working hard to get the VSAN up and running. They also helped organise the official launch of the Victorian Self Advocacy Network on the 19th of November 2013.
Strength in numbers
Monday 4th August, 2014: 1:30am - 2:30am
The Victorian Self Advocacy Network VSAN was launched in November 2013 in response to interest for such a network from more than 90 delegates at the last Strengthening Disability Advocacy Conference. This session will be an opportunity to learn all about how VSAN works, to explore ideas, talk about issues and let the Committee know what you think VSAN should be doing.
