We’re holding a series of workshops throughout 2019, aimed at empowering our members to become self-advocates in their local communities.
Our advocacy specialists will be sharing their tips on how to achieve positive outcomes, based on our experiences working with individuals on key issues impacting their daily lives.
Each workshop includes a toolkit for members to complete and take home, to assist them in their future advocacy endeavours.
Executive Manager – Member Services, Ross Duncan, said members could play an active role in improving their communities, using their firsthand knowledge and experiences, as well as their local connections.
“We’ve been working with and on behalf of our members for almost 60 years, ensuring they have an active voice in campaigns on a local, state and national level,” he said.
“We recognise that our members want to speak up for and represent themselves and to contribute to improvements in their local communities.
“That’s why we have developed these workshops, to provide advice on becoming an effective advocate or improving your existing skills in this area.”
Members will have the opportunity to discuss key issues in their region, along with Spinal Life’s current activities under our Advocacy Charter.

Time: 11am to 12.30pm with lunch provided
