Preventing and Responding to Abuse: A one-day forum

3rd May 2017

UPDATE 15 August 2017 – Tickets are now sold out!

UPDATE 30 May 2017 – Early Bird ticket offers have been extended to 16 June 2017!

This one-day forum is a must-attend event for all those in the Victorian disability sector.

The Victorian Government’s response to the 2016 Parliamentary Inquiry into Abuse in Disability Services listed a number of measures designed to strengthen the oversight of disability services as part of the transition to the NDIS (see our blog article about the response).

At this forum, you will learn more about what this increased oversight will mean for the delivery of disability services and hear from the different agencies that play a part in the safeguarding system.

You’ll also have the choice of attending presentations and workshops on:

  1. embedding zero tolerance approaches to abuse in your organisation
  2. empowering people with a disability to speak up
  3. best practice approaches to the prevention of abuse in other states and countries

Get in now and buy your tickets to take advantage of the Early Bird offer – ends 31 May 2017. NOTE – Early Bird offer has been extended to 16 June 2017.
