Your stories are welcome here
Who doesn’t love a good story? Especially one written by someone who really knows what they’re talking about?
The new blog section of our website is all about giving the people we work with a chance to share their stories with the wider community. Here you’ll be able to hear firsthand from people with disability about the issues that matter to them.
Carers will be able to talk about what matters to them too, along with staff working in the disability sector during this exciting time of full National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) roll out.
Too often people tell us others speak for them or about them. Now, through this blog, we’re giving them the chance to speak for themselves online.
People may want to offer advice to others in the community, challenge preconceived ideas, encourage debate about new perspectives or simply introduce themselves to you.
Northcott staff might also use the blog to share stories of their successes, events and learnings with you.
From time to time we may even share stories from guests and supporters who want to contribute to the blog.
We hope you’ll join with us to increase the visibility of disability issues in our community.
Please read, share and suggest. We are listening! We want this blog to be a platform for you to express yourself and spark conversations about what’s important to you.
