South West residents are being asked to participate in an online forum to help improve outcomes for people with a disability in the region.

Advocacy WA will hold a community storytelling workshop via Zoom on Thursday for people with a disability, their families, carers and other interested community members.

The workshop is part of a number being held over the coming months and is described by Advocacy WA as an opportunity to highlight and prioritise issues faced by people with a disability in the region and develop action plans to address those issues.

It is part of the larger Community Disability Advocacy Project, which the organisation is running with partner People With disabilities WA, and will see the rollout of a co-designed disability network across the South West this year.

The online forum is noted as being particularly suitable for individuals who are neurodivergent, although everyone is invited to take part.
