Free Volunteer Training
Any person with a disability, if you asked them, would tell you that it’s no secret that some people just don’t know how to engage with them. And many people without disability might tell you that sometimes, they just don’t know what to do around a person with a disability. Often, when we don’t know what to do, we do nothing and avoid those awkward situations. Or we do what we think is right but it just doesn’t feel right.
A Disability Inclusion Workshop enables a conversation on including people with disability in your volunteer work, community, and life.
Thursday 28 June, 1.30pm-5.00pm
Training is FREE for volunteers working in Penrith, Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains, Parramatta, Blacktown
