Resourcing Families is an initiative of Family Advocacy* that provides information and resources for families to support their family member with disability to live a meaningful and typical life as a valued member of their community.
Resourcing Families aims to assist families to develop their capacity and confidence to have more choice and control over decisions and support arrangements that will facilitate individualised lifestyles for their family member around their genuine interests and aspirations. This may include making the most of emerging opportunities for self directing supports through individualised funding.
Resourcing Families offers:
• Workshops and webinars
• Information over the phone and via email
• Opportunities for families to learn from each other
Family Advocacy* is a NSW independent advocacy organisation that works with families to promote and defend the rights and interests of people with developmental disability.
Resourcing Families is funded by Ageing, Disability and Home Care, Department of Family and Community Services NSW.
