Speak Out Conference Right Time – Right Now

Speak Out’s annual conference is an event worthwhile attending. There’s a great line-up of sessions for self advocates, families and support workers that includes:

  • David Corner from Empower Us in New Zealand,
  • Libbi Cunningham from 1800RESPECT,
  • WWDA sharing the Australian Committee report and feedback from the UN on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women that was presented at the UN recently,
  • Personal stories from self advocates
  • Paul Cain, Inclusion Australia
  • Our Australian Empower Us leaders – Judy Huett and Heather Forsythe about the World Congress in Birmingham
  • Quality and Safeguards
  • NDIS self management
  • Aardvark Adventures, drumming, sports cars, silent disco and more!!

On Friday evening we’ve partnered with the National Disability Coordination Officer Program (NDCO) for a screening of Defiant Lives that includes a Q&A with the Director.

It would be great to see some young people from the Huon and Kingborough area attend – we could help sponsor some HDN members and/or family members if there is interest.
