P2P is proud to be a part of two local organisations on the Sunshine Coast.
Loud and Clear
What is Loud and Clear?
Loud and Clear is a support network for our state representative of Inclusion Australia’s, Our Voice. They advocate change for people with a disability. There are 15 members.
What do Loud and Clear Members do?
They learn to be self-advocates and be positive role models. A representative of Loud and Clear has represented Queenslanders with an intellectual disability at:
- Having a Say conference in Geelong, Vic
- The World Congress, Melbourne, Vic
- The QAI Roundtable, Parliament House Brisbane, Qld
- NADIA testing for the National Disability Insurance Agency
- Staying Safe Forums presented by National Disability Services
- NDIS Information sessions presented by Queenslanders with Disability Network
- Self-Advocacy Resource Unit consultations, University of the Sunshine Coast, Qld.
Why is P2P involved with Loud and Clear?
P2P is a firm believer that disability self-advocacy groups should be run by people with disabilities who have joined together to have their voices heard and support each other. It is important that they work together to make sure they have the same rights, choices, and opportunities as anyone else.
So in 2015 the CEO’s and staff of Parent to Parent and Spiral decided to seek expressions of interest for the formation of a self-advocacy group based in Nambour. In September 2015 Loud and Clear was formed under the guidance of then Coordinator, Kathy.
How do you get in contact with them?
What is On Track?
On Track was formed by five Nambour based Disability Service Organisations to more effectively deliver services in the Sunshine Coast region and to prepare for the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Parent to Parent, Spiral, Scils, Equity Works and Inclusion Plus have been working together to better coordinate support to people with a disability and their families.
What does On Track do?
We work together on projects and events including A Fair Day Out and Nambour Together to raise community awareness of disability and the importance of integration.
Why is P2P involved with On Track?
P2P has a commitment to the people we support, and as the Sunshine Coast community transitions to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) we will assist in providing information and opportunities for preparation. Being involved with On Track means we have more avenues to help support people.
