Thanks to everyone who participated in the PWdWA Inaugural Conference in 2020
and helped make it such a great success!
The People with Disabilities WA State Conference 2020 was an inaugural two-day consumer-led, disability-sector event held at the Bendat Centre in Wembley on 19-20 November 2020.
Unlike typical sector conferences, which are aimed at disability professionals, this event was led exclusively by people with lived experience of disability, mental health issues and neurological difference. Although workers and the wider community were invited to attend, the program was unique in its focus on the perspectives, voices and input of people with disabilities.
Exploring the theme “Celebrating Self-Advocacy”, the conference was hosted as a partnership between People With disabilities WA (PWdWA) and Evolve.
