Self-Advocacy Groups 2016

Self-Advocacy Groups 2016

Our Self Advocacy and Mothers Self Advocacy groups provide an opportunity to discover, reflect and respond to issues of barriers and support all aspects of participation in the ACT.

As the year comes to end we look back at all the changes we had this year. We moved into our own training room in The Griffin Centre. This has been wonderful and given us our own space to meet; it also allows us to display some of the work produced by our members. We have our new Training Officer, Tracie working alongside Sharon. We have had many new members join over the past 12 months and we look forward to building on these friendships through 2017.

We had lengthy discussions at election time, and around other local issues. We kept our members up to date with other training opportunities as well educated people to have the skills to speak up for themselves. The members are also able to assist, support and educate each other with their own experiences and knowledge.

The Self - Advocacy groups have helped people to know their rights and exercise them, express their feelings, recognise the importance of responsible decision-making and make informed decisions
Overall it is about people feeling good about themselves and using their skills in wider community to ensure their own rights or the rights of others are being met.

We would like to take this opportunity in wishing everyone a very happy and safe holiday session.
