The Pathways to Opportunity workbook is available here on line to compliment the 6 session course. The course is available in a number of areas around NSW, please look under events to find a course close to you. If there is not one available in your area and you know of a group of people that are interested please contact Michaela Kennedy on either 0409 646 665 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
You can follow the workbook to develop a Person Centred Lifestyle Plan for yourself or your son / daughter with a disability.
This workbook is accompanied by a Planning template, into which you can transfer the information gathered during the workshops. The plan can then be used how you wish e.g. to inform other about the person and how to best support them, to organise supports, to share with service providers or funders or all of the above.
It has been a long-time dream of mine to be able to facilitate workshops
that provide the opportunity for families to be in the driving seat of planning the
future for their loved ones. I feel honoured and privileged to be doing this
together with colleagues and friends.
I would like to thank the many great thinkers of Person Centred work; John
O’Brien, Connie Lyle-O’Brien, Jack Pearpoint, Marsha Forest, Lynda Kahn, Beth
Mount, Julie Simpson, Michael Smull and Helen Sanderson as well as the world
leaders in Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) John McKnight, Mike
Green, Ric Thompson and Dee Brooks, plus the many other passionate people I
have met who influenced my work over the years; too many to mention here, you
know who you are, for their generosity and sharing. Without their ongoing
support this program would not exist.
This project is an initiative of the NSW Government under the Living Life
My Way – Getting Prepared projects.
