Do you hold a strong belief in the importance of the genuine inclusion of people with disability? Are you wanting to be a part of creating positive grassroots change? Then this role may be the right fit for you.
This exciting opportunity will enable you to work directly alongside people with disability and families to increase expectations, build knowledge and capacity that enables people to live full and inclusive lives.
Family Advocacy is a statewide, not for profit disability advocacy organisation that works with families to promote and defend the rights and interests of people who have developmental disability. This is achieved by strengthening the advocacy role and influence of families so that they can speak out with, and on behalf of their own family member, or for people with developmental disability more broadly.
The Capacity Development Coordinator will carry out the responsibilities of the position in accordance with the philosophy, policy and practices laid down by the Management Committee and in a way which reflects the cultural diversity of the Australian population.
Resourcing Inclusive Communities is an initiative of Family Advocacy and works across NSW. We hold the philosophy that people with disability thrive in the heart of the community, sharing the same everyday experiences as their fellow Australians.
We share our vision of social inclusion with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). One of the eight guiding principles of the CRPD outlines that all people with disability have the right to experience full and effective participation and inclusion in society. Resourcing Inclusive Communities works with many allies in the community to support this vision.
We provide information through our online platforms, through events such as webinars, workshops and conferences, we design tailored training, mentoring and supports for external services, develop extensive resources and have a 1800 number that provides support across NSW. We support positive change through working closely with people with disability, their family members, service providers, mainstream services, businesses and the broader community.
This position sits within our Inclusive Lives: Possibility to Reality Project which is a state-wide, multi-layered project to strengthen the knowledge, skills and confidence of people with disability and their families so that many more people with disability across NSW experience typical pathways experienced by most Australians.
