Local Matters Donation

In January Advocacy for Inclusion participated in Grill'd's Local Matters program.

grill'd local matters jarThis initiative aims to get local groups/charities a greater awareness within the local community by getting diners to  pick, (by placing a token in a jar) 1 of 3 charities/groups that they would like to see go in the running for $300 donation, with the  runners up getting $100.

Advocacy for Inclusion came away with a donation of $100, which will go towards funding our  self-advocacy  course for people with disabilities. 

We would like to thank Grill'd Canberra Centre for their lovely service and support. 

We would also like to thank everyone who put a token in our jar!

$100 may not seem like much, but for us as little as:

  • $25 Buys fresh food for one week of our Nutrition and Self-advocacy course 
  • $50 Provides one comprehensive Self-advocacy manual, a resource for future self-advocacy
  • $80 Pays for a return trip by taxi for a self-advocate to attend training or our self-advocacy network
  • $123 Hires a training room for one session of Self-advocacy education

A small donation can go a long way to help people with disability speak up for themselves, but without donations we cannot keep these courses running. 

If you would like to donate to Advocacy for Inclusion you can donate Online through Hands Across Canberra or by downloading a donations form off our website
