Become a Leader in 2016
Do you want to learn more skills to be a leader in your own life and community?
Down Syndrome NSW is pleased to announce a partnership with My Choice Matters.
In 2016 we will offer the Become a Leader program in an Easy Read format for people with Down syndrome. The program will be held in Parramatta over 2 days (one week apart).
This program in Parramatta is the only one specifically for people with Down syndrome, however more easy read programs are planned for regional NSW in 2016. The course is free, but places are limited. Program dates will be set to suit people’s availability. Support to travel to Parramatta from regional areas can be arranged.
If you are interested in this program please contact Kate McNamara for more information.
Kate’s email is firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 02 9841 4444.
This program is part of Down Syndrome NSW’s LEAP (Lived Experience Advisory Project).
