NDCO Region 22 has joined with other NDCO's from Charles Darwin University and the University of SA to design, devlop and distribute a unique training resource for service providers engaging or seeking to engage with indigenous individuals, families and communities around disability, education, training and employment.
The resource will focus on indigenous people telling their stories and giving real-life examples of the best way for service providers to learn from them about how disability is perceived in their lives and communities and give an insight from the indigenous consumer on how services couldbest communicate with them.
On this Project, NDCO's are working closely with the First Peoples Disability network and local communities and individuals around Australia. The finished resource (due for release in May 2015) will feature lots of video and interactive content to act as a training and induction tool for service providers as well as a refresher for those who have been in the various industries for many years.
There are cultural awareness and disability training programs out there, this one is unique by way of the content coming directly from indigenous consumers of services, by utilising video as a way of communicating people's stories and by being available on a fully responsive web platform that will make it available to all providers on any phone, tablet or computer for easy, always available access.
To capture the video, we have engaged a highly skilled and experienced professional film crew. Included here is a recent sample of their work and really informative video called Living My Way.
