I attended the September/October 2011 workshops and found them to be very informative. They gave a good background of the Bespoke philosophy and how to achieve independence. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming and it was interesting to hear other families’ experiences and hopes for the future.
I have re-read my comments on the feedback sheet for the first workshops held late 2010. It all seems a long time ago and we have learnt so much since then. The value of the workshops was that everything was relevant and the information was specific. Probably most people, if they don’t have a business background find employing and paying workers quite daunting, but the information was concrete and easy to understand. The fact that the information was together and accessible saved lots of time – we can refer back to the workshops to remind ourselves of something we’re not sure about.
Community Access is the common term used in the disability sector when people with disability go ‘into’ the community. Unfortunately there is a tendency to label things for people with disability and make it into something ‘special’ or different from the norm. If people without disability go shopping, to the bank or for a walk in the park, they don’t talk about having community access. These activities are simply a natural part of their everyday lives.
