Self-Advocacy Workshops - Expressions of Interest

Speak Up imageThis workshop has been developed for us by Dorothy Sellers, B.Com.Welf:M.Soc.Pol and will be presented and facilitated by our trained Advocates.  In it you will:

  • learn what self-advocacy is and the skills you need
  • know how and when to use them
  • learn how to identify problems
  • how to prepare yourself and how to do it

These workshops are open to people with disability, their family members and/or carers, support workers or service organisations.

Due to the success of our 2020 Workshop Series, we are taking expressions of interest from those who would like to attend a workshop.  Please call our office on 1800 887 688 and speak with Leanne or email her at
