Upcoming Events

AFDO Advocacy Forum, 22nd October 2018, 11am – 3pm

This Forum is an opportunity for people with disability, families and carers to listen to self-advocates as they speak about their journey, how they became a self-advocate, and why self-advocacy matters. This Forum will also include a range of speakers talking about systemic advocacy as they tell us why we need systemic disability advocacy organisations in Australia.  Join us in celebrating advocacy, individual, systemic, and self-advocacy as we showcase a range of speakers sharing their stories, and most importantly, how to become a disability advocate.  Follow this link for more information and to Register.
