Strengthening Disability Advocacy conference 2012
Disability advocacy and the legal system: You be the judge!

Monday 26 & Tuesday 27 March 2012 @ Melbourne Park Function Centre

Empowering women with disabilities in local communities

This presentation will focus on the recent development of a learning package designed to assist women with disabilities in representation and advocacy work. The package is based on a partnership model and will be used to resource a pilot advocacy training program to be held later in the year. It is hoped that the learning package and training program will be
rolled out in conjunction with women’s services across the state, empowering women with disabilities to raise their voices and address issues of concern for themselves and other women with disabilities.
