A final reminder of the survey to help shape an agency to act as a united voice for Tasmanians with a disability.
SARC highlighted the need for such a voice in 2016: bit.ly/2ufMUEw
The survey closes on THIS Friday, 18th April.The first stage of Disability Voices Tasmania has begun.

We are asking Tasmanians with disability and our allies to complete a short survey about what a strong collective voice might look like.

The survey is now on our website www.disabilityvoicestasmania.org.au

There are examples of other collective voices of people with disability in Australia to help you think about the type of model that could work here.

You can also contribute to Disability Voices Tasmania by;

- Posting the link to our website on your website/Facebook page/Instagram
- Encouraging people you know to complete the survey
- And responding to the survey yourselves

We understand that many people with disability would not respond to a survey so you can complete the survey over the phone with Fiona or invite her to come and speak with a group of interested people and complete it together.

The survey is open for 6 weeks and closes Friday 18th April.
