Inclusion International (II) will be taking an active role in the upcoming seminar on the role of families at the UN. II will be there to raise awareness about the role of families supporting a family member with an intellectual disability.
As part of our contribution to the discussion, we have developed a brief on the role of families and the supports they need. Drawing on our research and submission from members, the brief provides a snapshot of the status of families, the challenges they experience and the supports they need.
Watch for our tweets and posts about the event: #standupforfamilies
Moving forward, we will use the brief to engage in a comprehensive policy discussion with our members with the aim of developing a policy paper on families.
