‘A Strong Voice: Self-Advocacy’, NDIS Webinar Accessible Video

If you missed the recent webinar or would like to revisit the discussion, ‘A Strong Voice: Self-Advocacy’ is now available online. Accessible formats include video, voice, captioning, transcript and Auslan.

‘A Strong Voice’ is the third webinar from the National Disability Insurance Agency. This is an uplifting discussion on self-advocacy, and how people with disability take control of their own lives to speak for themselves. Our panel of guests discuss ways that self-advocacy has helped them to make informed choices about their reasonable and necessary supports and achieve their personal goals.

Leigh Creighton, peer mentor from Newcastle; Emma Norton, self-advocate and student; and Ros Sackley, Ngiyampaa woman and teacher; share their insights and respond to questions submitted by an online audience.

Join us again on Thursday 20 March for an NDIS contribution to mark International Women’s Day: ‘Women with Disability, the NDIS and the Broader Community’. Details will be provided closer to the event.
