A Search for Meaningful Moments

6 Hour Workshop

How can we support people to have purpose & value in their day?

This practical workshop will focus on the power of creating valued roles for children or adults with disabilities. Those attending will leave with a better understanding of how to improve the quality of someone’s day, based on building genuine relationships and roles, rather than only supporting them in activities.

This workshop will also examine ways in which people with disabilities can increase their contribution within their own homes and the surrounding community. Cara will give some first steps in how to support people with disabilities to lead inclusive and value filled lives.
