Living With Disabilities – A Christmas Conversation!

The CEDAR Centre has been a long time supporter and educator of those with a disability and to end 2017 on the right note, they have organised drinks and canapes and a great line-up to carry on the Christmas conversation – ‘Living with a Disability at a Time of Travel and Celebration.

The event is being sponsored by the Newlands Group and The Office and is the first of what is planned to be a series of ‘Conference Conversations’ in 2018.

This session will take place Wednesday, 20th December from 3pm – 4.30pm at The Office in Duggan Street, Toowoomba, and people from care organisations, senior and frontline staff, teachers, employers with or planning to recruit staff with a disability, church groups, those interested in seeking employment in the disability sector and individuals and families living with a disability, are all encouraged to come along.

  • Sharon Boyce, founder of Discovering Disabilities and Diversity
  • Anna Nicholls, CEO of CEDAR Centre
  • Jen Shaw, Founder of ‘Emerge’, author and food celebrity
  • Carolyn Hunter, founder of Ben & Co and mum of Ben Hunter
  • Anne Button-Smith, Local Area Coordinator with Toowoomba NDIS

After some short presentations, an open Q & A style discussion will be facilitated, then networking.

Anna Nicholls, CEO of CEDAR Centre said, “This is a busy time of year for everyone, with the stresses even more accentuated in a family with disabilities. We wanted to have a relaxed event that allowed the conversation for awareness to take place and for those in the industry or curious about it, to have a networking opportunity to come along and ask questions.”

Please RSVP to the CEDAR Centre on 07 4512 6770.
