Having a Say Conference 2021

Having a Say Conference 2021

We invite people with a disability, families and workers to register for the 2021 Having a Say (HaS) conference.

While due to Covid we may be a bit smaller this year, the conference will still be just as exciting both live at Deakin and for those joining us online for sessions. 
Interstate and some Victorian agencies are conducting their own ‘Having a Say’ day on a selected day of the conference and joining us online. We hope to have you participate in some way.
The Program will feature all the usual activities:

  • Amazing presentations and stories by presenters with disability
  • Performances by disability drama groups and individuals
  • VALID and Inclusion Australia streams looking at the big issues; employment, NDIS changes, supported decision making and much more
  • Conference Dinner and Disco
  • Dinner & Chat with speaker
  • Come & Try activities
  • Our Choice Expo

You can register for the conference here.
