Sharing Self-Advocacy Best Practice

On 14th July we held our first Self-Advocacy: Sharing Best Practice session.

Self-Advocacy groups across the country are leading the way on important work.

We know that everyone is often so busy they don’t get to share their work.

We want to help connect people and them work together.

In this meeting three self-advocacy groups shared projects that they are proud of.

The groups told everyone what their project was about and why it’s important.

These sessions are funded by RTR.
