Watch this video below which summarises the key takeaways from the Together: Building an Inclusive Youth Sector resource.
Together has been generously supported by workers in the Victorian youth sector and disability sector, and young people with and without disability.
The project has been shaped by a steering committee made up of representatives of the Victorian youth sector. Clare Griffin (City of Port Phillip), Mariah Magri (Brimbank City Council), Linette Harriot (Centre for Multicultural Youth), Christina Collins (Frankston City Council), Lisa Rodwell (City of Stonnington), Sam Champion (Youth Affairs Council Victoria), Tanya Marks (Kingston Youth & Family Services) and Ruby Cameron (The Drum) all contributed their skills, experience, ideas, encouragement and support to Together: Building an Inclusive Youth Sector as steering committee members.
To develop Together, the project team consulted with representatives from Youth Affairs Council Victoria, Swan Hill Rural City Council Youth Services, Swan Hill District Health, Mitchell Shire Youth Council, Brimbank City Council Libraries, Brimbank City Council L2P program, Brimbank City Council Youth Services, Centre for Multicultural Youth, Victoria University, City of Port Phillip Metro Access and delegates at Connecting the Dots (YACVic rural youth worker conference in Ballarat) and Having a Say (VALID conference for people with disability in Geelong).
The content of the Together workshops and online resource is written by young people with disability for the Victorian youth sector. The content draws upon the amazing work of Julia and Petra of Undercurrent Victoria, Brunswick Music Festival, Australian Network on Disability and The Australian Human Rights Commission.
YDAS acknowledges the support of the Victorian Government.
Together we can create a world where young people with and without disability are living, working, playing and socialising together.
