Consultation sessions are designed for family members of residents currently living in group homes and residential services and service providers such as Australian Home Care Services. Seminars for residents currently living in group homes and residential services are set to follow.
There are several ways to participate in the consultation. In addition to attending a consultation session, feedback can also be provided via an easy English questionnaire online.
