As we navigate what’s happening in the world around us we are faced with new challenges, but also new opportunities. We have been planning a number of initiatives in recent months that we are excited to start rolling out.
You will be seeing more opportunities to get involved, including a pilot project designed to develop tools that will help people find a new home, and also inform the future of our work. We will be inviting people to contribute so stay tuned for updates.
We have welcomed some new faces to the organisation, including Emma Gee as a Lived Experience Advisor. Emma will be working with teams to create resources shaped by lived experience and help facilitate better ways to engage more people with disability in our work. You can hear more from Em in a recent post on the Staying Connected page.
We also have research projects looking at paid disability support and the role of support coordinators that you can be part of.
Until next time, stay safe and well.
