The new disability sector environment creates exciting opportunities

 

Rachel Price has 25 years experience in the disability sector. She talks about new opportunities in the context of the history of the sector and the shift that is happening towards building capacity with families and disabled people leading social change. One of these opportunities is to be able to use Individualised Funding to help people with their career aspirations - in particular creating a micro-business. She also talks about how families leading social change create new opportunities such as the Christchurch-launched S.T.A.R.S training programme!
