My Home My Way is a workshop to support people with disability to create and thrive in their own home.

What is this workshop about?

Home is a vital part of our lives. It not only gives us security, privacy, comfort and control but it reflects our identity, our adulthood and our deep sense of who we are and how we connect and belong in our neighbourhood.

Yet for many people, particularly people with disability, 'home' is designed and controlled by others.
