Purple Orange was successful in getting a 3-year grant through the NDIA’s ILC (Information Linkages and Capacity Building) individual capacity building grants. We have called the 3-year project SKILL. This stands for Strengthening Knowledge, Information, Links and Leadership.
SKILL rural workshops are about to start. The first place we are running them is in Murray Bridge then Kadina, then Nuriootpa and then Broken Hill.
These free workshops are for people living with disability, family members and their supporters. Each workshop covers specific topics and areas, and people can register and attend as few or as many as suits them. To achieve the best outcomes, we recommend people to attend all six workshops.
The workshops have been co-designed by people living with disability for people living with disability. The facilitators of the workshop are Jennifer Job from Life Upcycled and Cherie Rowett from Heart Choice Enterprises.
Please click here to register for all the workshops.
The workshops have already started but the whole series are being held over several months. You can register and come along to any of them that you are interested in and may benefit from, it doesn’t matter if you didn’t attend the earlier workshops.
A series of 6 capacity releasing workshops will be run by JFA Purple Orange in Nuriootpa during October, November and December 2020.
Wednesday 2nd December Workshop 5: Feeling at home enables people to explore the meaning of home and the various options for creating your home and bringing a vision of your own home to life.
Thursday 3rd December Workshop 6: Safeguard your success looks at important concepts such as safeguards and safety, dignity of risk and strategies for raising concerns. It will also look at the benefits of Peer Networks.
