At Bespoke Lifestyles, we support people to have big dreams, to think beyond the traditional support model, to aim for their own goals and to utilise their NDIS plan to best support themselves.

One way we do this is by holding ongoing education workshops and online webinars, allowing you to learn from us and other NDIS self-managed or NDIS plan-managed participants.

Human Rights Act Master Class

July 19 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$80.21

Human Rights Act Master Class:

In February 2019, the Queensland State Parliament passed the strongest and clearest human rights act in the country making Queensland a national human rights leader.

This means that from January 1, 2020, individuals whose human rights are breached by public entities—including disability organisations—will have access to an affordable complaints mechanism administered by the Queensland Human Rights Commission.

To prepare for the introduction of the Human Rights Act and complaints mechanism, Disability Law Queensland Director and founder and coordinator of the Human Rights Act for Queensland campaign, Aimee McVeigh, is holding a three-hour workshop for disability organisation employees, people with disability, their families and supporters.

COST: (including GST): $75 (plus booking fees)

Catering is included.

Attendees will:

  • Become aware of the 23 human rights protected by the legislation and learn about what the Act means for Queenslanders, especially people with disability.
  • Learn what the Act means for your organisation, what your obligations are under it and how to make sure you are compliant.
  • Learn how to be a human rights warrior – use the Act in your work and life to ensure that people have freedom and are treated with respect, equality and dignity.
