First Peoples Disability Network Gathering 16-17 August 2018, Tamworth, NSW

FPDN Building the Aboriginal Disability Service Sector Gathering 

It is vital that our people with disability have access to culturally appropriate services and supports in the areas they live in. Aboriginal people with disability experience disadvantage and discrimination at higher rates than the general population. FPDN is committed to improving access to services and supports for our people with disability and ensuring that there is a strong and sustainable Aboriginal disability service sector and workforce in Australia.

FPDN will cover a wide range of topics focused on challenges and opportunities in building the Aboriginal disability service sector and promoting job opportunities for our mob.

Industry experts will run skill building workshops in the areas of governance, best practice, information technology & communications and marketing to give you the tools to grow your Aboriginal disability service business.

Hear from your clients: Aboriginal Elders and people living with disability will share their stories about their journey with the NDIS, informal supports and aged care.

Sponsorship tickets to the gathering available to Aboriginal people living with disability and Aboriginal disability service providers. To apply, please contact us 02 9267 4195 or email: enquiries@fpdn.org.au
