Breaking Barriers: ReDefining Disability

Youth Voice Canterbury (YVC) are proud to have launched ReDefine: Youth Development Programme at the start of 2019. ReDefine aims to redefine what it means to be a young person with a disability and empower these young people to take on a positive identity and see their value not despite disability but with disability.

A young person with a disability herself, Eleanor Hurton is passionate about giving youth with disabilities the tools, confidence and resources to realise their potential – which ultimately led her to use YVC as a platform to create and project manage ReDefine. Eleanor will share some of her journey and the YVC Management Team will discuss the insights and reflections from ReDefine so far.

If you want to learn how you or your organisation can successfully empower, include and support young people with disabilities this session is not to be missed!
