Our Website Launch

 

On April the 27th, Citizen Advocacy Sunbury & Districts Inc. celebrated the launch of our new website. Over a year in the making, Committee, staff and volunteers of the program came together with Farnham Street Neighborhood Learning Centre and the Hume City Council to produce our first ever, program dedicated website. We were delighted to have Cr Anne Potter and many other community leaders attend and   celebrate this milestone with us. We will be incorporating more features into our website as this year progresses, broadening our reach into the Hume community. This new website has opened the opportunity for people to view and contact us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from the comfort of their own space, eliminating locality and time restraints, allowing for much greater access to our service, especially to those limited by mobility. Our organization is now linked in with other groups servicing the Hume City population and we expect our participation rates to increases as, more and more groups and individuals become aware of our service. Some of you may have seen our website launch included within local media, featuring in the ‘Sunbury Weekly’ on the 1st of May.

 

 
 
 

 

Advocates Required

 

We are recruiting an advocate for a 28 y o woman who has a mild intellectual disability living at home with her family in Greenvale. This young woman requires someone to be a mentor and friend, and to help her gain confidence in social situations outside of the family unit and make friends and connection in the wider community.

If you or someone you know may be a suitable advocate, please contact the Co-ordinator, David Abela on, phone - 9744 7378 or

Supporting Decision Making...

 

The Department of Human Services have developed a guide ‘Supporting Decision Making - A guide to support people with a disability to make their own decisions’  to assist support workers and supporters of people with a disability to understand rights and responsibilities with regard to decision making.

The freedom to make decisions which affect our lives is a fundamental right that each of us should enjoy. People with a disability are no different in this regard however, some people may require some additional assistance in order to be able to make and express choices.  People with a disability may also be excluded from the decision making processes that affect them because others make incorrect assumptions or believe they know what is best for them.

For more information or to request a copy of the guide please contact the Department of Human Services - Disability information and support - 1800 783 783.
