Having a voice

This section explores what it means to speak up and be heard about your opinions, your ideas, the needs and wants.  It includes material about making decisions and taking risks.

The topics here can help start a conversation in your peer network about how to make sure you speak up about the things that are important to you.

The video below is about the Yarning Circle network in Queensland set up  “To help our own people to understand what was disability and that they could actually have a voice to speak out.” Willie Prince, founding member.

This video was part of the Self advocacy Resource Unit’s (SARU) presentation at the Advocacy Sector Conversations forum held on 28 November 2017.
