SUMMER FOUNDATION ANNUAL PUBLIC FORUM

FINDING OUR WAY HOME: NAVIGATING THE JOURNEY TO SDA

 

The Summer Foundation 2020 Annual Public Forum was held as an online event on Thursday, 12 November, with around 300 attendees joining us via Zoom.

Led by Host, Beverley O’Connor (ABC News 24), our panel of policy makers, sector experts and people with lived experience of disability and contributors were able to share and discuss the positive life-changing impacts of SDA as well as some of the barriers and challenges being faced by many along the journey to SDA. We also explored what is being done to make SDA a possibility for many more people with disability.

Thank you to all who submitted questions during the forum. Some of these questions were able to be addressed directly by our panellists during the Q & A session. All have now been answered and are available for review below:
