A collective voice is when a group of people come together equally and speak together on issues that affect them as individuals and as a group.
The project will work on 4 things:
In this project the word ‘allies’ means parents, families, carers, advocates and community disability organisations promoting the rights of people with disability.
Disability Voices Tasmania is currently piloting a range of workshops for people with disability around the state.
The first two workshops will be "Improving the knowledge and skills of people with disability to make sure we have accessible buildings and public spaces"
This workshop will provide people with the following knowledge and skills:
*understanding the key access requirements of building regulations and how access can be improved by implementing them;
*knowledge about how the building design and approval processes work;
*information on how to do something about buildings and public space that do not provide good access;
*skills to work with your local government on public space access.
