This is a 3-part online workshop to support people with disability to create and thrive in their own home. The workshop is open to NSW residents only. It is vital that you attend all three sessions.

The dates are:
• Friday 17 September

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.

In this three-part workshop you'll learn about the individualised and innovative ways that people with disability have created their own home, while getting the support they need.
