WWDACT is running a series of workshops on Self Advocacy Supported Decision Making for women, non-binary and feminine identifying people with disabilities. These workshops are designed to help you find supporters, make your own decisions and tell people about the decisions you make. You can attend all or some of the workshops and they are all free.
Self Advocacy is when you understand your rights, make decisions for yourself and speak up for yourself.
Supported Decision Making is a practical way for a person with a disability to make sure that they are at the centre of making their own decisions and are heard by those around them. Support is provided by someone the person trusts. This could be a family member, friend, service provider or someone else chosen by the person. Supported decision making may also help the person with a disability to build their skills in decision making and develop the confidence to decide more for themselves. (Source)
