At SACID we think that it is really important that people with intellectual disability and their families have access to information.
When you have information you can make good choices about your life.
One way that SACID helps people to get information is by running workshops.
We run workshops for
- People with intellectual disability
- Family members and carers of people with intellectual disability
- General members of the community and businesses
Our workshops are co-facilitated by our staff with intellectual disability. Most of our workshops are run for free and if you have a small group interested in our workshops we can come to you.
