A FREE event for carers by Carers Victoria
Advocacy Workshop and Carer Forum in Warrnambool
Advocacy is about speaking up in support of your rights and the rights of the person you care for. It is about negotiating to make sure that you get the practical, financial and emotional support you need.
Carers often feel that the service system is a maze, that professionals work against them and that they have to battle for every tiny gain.
It’s a lot easier to organise the services and supports that you need, and to make sure that they work for you if you approach people informed and prepared to negotiate.
Discover practical strategies and tips about:
- What is advocacy – for individuals
- Preparing to speak up
- How to present your case
- How to make a complaint
- How to escalate a complaint, if needed
We will also cover
- How Carers Victoria speaks up for carers (systemic advocacy)
- How you can add your voice to Carers Victoria’s
This workshop also gives carers a chance to connect with one another and to share knowledge and experiences.
Light refreshments provided.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for access/inclusion queries, including interpreters or other supports in advance of the session.
Carers Victoria in partnership with Warrnambool City Council proudly presents this workshop.
