A WORKSHOP FOR PEOPLE WHO PROVIDE SUPPORT:
Support Workers employed by individuals/families or organisations |Coordinators | Managers | Local Coordinators
PRESENTED BY SUSAN STANFORD & CHARLOTTE VAN DER BURGT
The value of quality support cannot be over estimated when it comes to a person with disability getting to self-direct their life.
“In me changing support workers that has probably put me where I am today. I met this young guy who basically changed my life, changed my whole perspective.
If I hadn’t met him, if he hadn’t encouraged me, I wouldn’t be the independent person I am today”. PETER HALL
