Self-directed funding - learning from the Canadians

Resourcing Families is a new initiative of Family Advocacy.

Creating Inclusive Lives – the Canadian Experience
This workshop is for families, friends and professionals interested in creating rich inclusive lives for people with developmental disability.

The workshop gives you the opportunity to:
· learn from many years of experience in self directed funding in Canada
· hear about strategies to build inclusive communities
· explore opportunities for post school life
· understand the value and importance of a vision in creating a rich life

This one day workshop includes presentations by family members and professionals who have a long history of supporting inclusion and self directed funding in Canada. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn directly from a large group of people who have experienced many years of self-directed funding in Canada, and will be particularly helpful as the NSW government has committed to making self-directed funding an options for all support by 1 July 2014.
