Who should attend
Youth workers in the Great South Coast region.
What to expect
The Youth Disability Advocacy Service is supporting the youth sector to be more accessible and inclusive of young people with disability. We want to create a world where young people with disability are able to access the same services as everyone else.
We are offering a half-day training course for youth workers on including young people with disability. The training will motivate you to make positive change, give you the confidence to take the next steps, and provide you with the tools and skills to be more accessible and inclusive.
In the training we will cover:
- what inclusion looks like
- communicating respectfully with young people with disability
- rethinking disability as a result of social barriers
- some great examples of inclusive practice from around Victoria
- practical tools and techniques
- developing an Access and Inclusion Plan for you and your organisation
Lunch is provided.
This workshop is free but registrations are essential. Registrations close Sunday 19 May 2019 at 5:00pm. Register here.
