Hello, I am Sherrie, the Vice President of Deaf Australia Board. Deaf Australia, along with various board members, will be traveling across Australia from June until August to meet with the Deaf community for four reasons:
1. Deaf Australia Constitution consultation.
2. Deaf community consultation for Deaf Australia.
3. NDIS Review - this will be a paid opportunity for participants.
4. NDIS Youth Review - each state will have a young person responsible to run this workshop.
The dates for these events will be provided in text and they will be scheduled over the weekends to ensure community participation. We will advertise the dates, times, and locations, so please stay tuned. RSVP is essential for attendance. I look forward to seeing you in Tasmania on the 3rd of June. Bye.
