Building Community Networks – Circles of Support

This webinar is part of the Advocacy Sector Conversations Forum series.

Presented by Teresa Micallef, Belonging Matters

About this session

Advocates stand alongside the person with disability to make sure that their voices are heard in all matters that affect them. However, skilling up people with disabilities to utilise choice and control,  takes time and is not currently recognised under current advocacy funding models.

Circles of Support are a process where intentional networks of people are built around a person with disability  to assist them in the creation of a good life in community and support their decision making through developing trusted relationships. Teresa Micallef is responsible for Building Community Networks at Belonging Matters. In this session, she shares her experience of the Circles of Support initiative including the positive outcomes for all involved in promoting decision making support,  as well as the limitations and challenges she encounters.
