Future Planning - Safeguarding the Good Life workshop (face to face) - Mon 31 Oct

  • 31 October 2022
  • 09:00am - 03:00pm
  • Parramatta Location TBC

Do you want to learn how to plan for a long-term positive and secure future for a person with disability?

One of the most common concerns expressed by families is the uncertainty about the future of their loved ones with disability, particularly after parents are no longer around.

This workshop will explore a range of considerations around planning for the future so that family members with disability have safeguards in place that work towards ensuring the things that are important to them are protected well into the future. 

There is much that families can do now, so join us for this highly requested event to take the next steps 

Join this workshop if you:

  • Are concerned about the future of your family members with disability when you are no longer able to advocate for the good things of life
  • Are looking for strategies from other families such as Circles of Support and Valued Roles
  • Are interested in Legal safeguards  such as Wills and Trusts 
  • Wanting to network with other families and share experiences
