Quality Disability Support Workshop Series
Sparked by the peer network Disability Elders of All Ages, the Quality Support project aims to raise the quality and consistency of formal disability support. We do this through training and support to disability support workers and others in the sector. We offer free workshops to anyone and everyone to learn, share and develop. We seek to further connect and build leaders through our Community of Practice for support workers. We host monthly workshops on topics identified by people who receive and provide support as those that are often overlooked or misunderstood.
Our events have finished for 2023.
Please sign up to the monthly newsletter to stay in touch.
