    ‘Understanding Abuse’ and 'Staying Safe' forum
    National Disability Services, NSW CID and the NSW Ombudsman invite you to attend a free forum about human rights, safety and preventing abuse and neglect of people with disability.

    Representatives from VALID will talk about their Staying Safe program for people with disability. Staff from NDS’s Zero Tolerance Initiative will also talk about the free new Understanding Abuse online training and tools for disability service providers.

    Who should come to the forums?
    People with disability, direct support staff and supervisors are invited to both sessions. You can also choose the session that is best for you.

    The event is free, but please RSVP to let us know you're coming via the eventbrite link
