    • Succession and planning for the future
    • Advocacy - for yourself or for your family member
    • Safeguarding - keeping people safe without wrapping them in cotton wool
    • Creative use of funding and self-managing
    • Using funded support well
    • Real and meaningful work

    Get in touch to organise a time to meet or have a conversation. Our dates may change slightly.

    About the Presenters


    Catherine Laherty has worked with CRU since 2015, starting on a project assisting people and families to get ready for the NDIS. Catherine presents workshops on topics like using your NDIS plan well, advocacy, self-management, belonging and a 'good life' for people with disability. Catherine has facilitated networks of people who self-manage their support in Brisbane and Toowoomba.

    She is interested in people with disability being valued and included in their local community, having the skills and confidence they need to be in control of their life, and the development of natural supports (peer support, ‘informal’ support), for people with and without funding

    Sue Duncan-Kemp has over 30 years experience in the disability sector working in roles within government and in the not-for-profit sector. Before semi-retiring, she worked in the provision of NDIS Early Childhood Early Intervention Services in South West Queensland. 

    Sue began her working life as a Speech and Language Pathologist and developed an ongoing interest in and from early beginnings working in large residential settings, developed an ongoing interest in what it takes to enable people with a disability of all ages to live ordinary (and extraordinary), meaningful lives in the communities of their choice. 

    Who is Community Resource Unit Ltd (CRU)

    CRU believes people with disability deserve access to the same life as everybody else. For over 35 years, CRU has been working across Queensland to help people with disability take control of their lives and take their place in their community. We have been funded as a Disabled People and Families Organisation by the Department of Social Services for these activities. There is a cost to attend or participate.
