😒 Do you or the person you love or work with feel alone even with support? You’re not the only one.

πŸ˜” Many people with disabilities feel the same way. They have support but no real friends. This isn’t okay.

🌈 Let’s work on changing that!

🀝 Our workshop will help you think about making friends and being part of the community.

πŸ€” What will we do?

  • 🌟 Learn what “good support” really means.
  • πŸŒ‰ Talk about how paid support DONE WELL can help you make friends.
  • πŸ’ͺ Share easy steps to build relationships that last.
  • ❀️ Think about how to make a real difference in people’s lives.
  • 🧑 Learn how to find friends, not just support.
  • 🎀 Join Sam Paior AND the fabulous Dr Leighton Jay for this very practical workshop

πŸ§‘β€πŸ€β€πŸ§‘ Who should come? Disabled people, family carers and support workers (and even Support Coordinators)

πŸ€— Don’t miss out. Everyone deserves a friend.
