This workshop invites people with disability to attend accompanied by a support person of their choice, and participate in the process of identifying their own gifts and assets, mapping opportunities within their community and developing strategies to enhance existing social and community connections. Participants will leave with a plan that can form part of their NDIS planning preparation.
