What’s it about
The Having a Say Conference aims to empower people living with a disability to ‘have a say’ about issues that affect their lives and to celebrate their achievements. The 2020 theme is 'A Good Life. Are we there yet?'
The Having a Say conference is the largest conference for people with disabilities within Australia where people can find their voice, to speak up, to be heard and to be respected.
This is the conference where people listen to each other, where people respect each other’s views and opinions, and celebrate their common cause.
People enjoy coming to the conference for a range of reasons. Some are keen advocates for people with disability and want to debate about issues, others find the whole environment empowering and some just want to have fun!
The conference will feature stories by presenters with disability, performances by disability drama groups, VALID and Inclusion Australia look at the big issues; employment, accommodation, community participation and much more.
