The Youth Disability Advocacy Service (YDAS) supports 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.

Five young disabled people co-designed and co-facilitate Together: Building an Inclusive Youth Sector Training – an interactive half-day 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 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 techniques to plan, promote, deliver and evaluate activities and events
  • developing an Access and Inclusion Plan for you and your organisation

The training is suitable for up to 20 participants and works best when delivered to a whole staff team, including management. Young people with disability co-designed and co-facilitate the training.

If you have any questions or want to know more, or would like to book a Together Training for your team, please contact our Together Program Assistant and Peer Facilitator Is Hay (they/them). Their email is ihay@ydas.org.au or you can call or text them at 0472 635 607 .
