On Thursday, 3 December 2020 Advocacy WA held its first lunch celebrating International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD).
It was great to see so many turn out and support the lunch, and it was great to see the reception that our speakers received. Ms Samantha Jenkinson from the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission spoke about her new role as the State Director of the Commission and talked about the rollout of the Commission’s work and the intended relationships in working in the disability sector.
We were also very pleased to welcome Mr Don Punch MLA and Vonne, a past client of Advocacy WA to talk about their experiences with disability.
All in all, it was a great day and enjoyed immensely.
