RIAC provides support to the Shout Out Shepparton Self Advocacy Group (a program of RIAC). Shout Out meets monthly on a Tuesday afternoon between 12:30pm – 2:30pm.
The ‘Shout Out Shepparton’ Self Advocacy Group was formed to empower people with disabilities and their families and carers. Since their inception in 2013, the groups have worked actively to support members to speak up and have a voice within their community. The groups meet on a monthly basis, while also attending conferences, training opportunities and running events during the year to raise awareness of Self Advocacy. They also work to improve services and educate the community. Examples of work includes representatives meeting with high level bureaucrats in DHHS, providing information to businesses about access issues, holding their own radio segment, running events including self-advocacy film day; Walk for Voice and Choice, and informing and working with RIAC. In the coming months, the group is holding an Arts Exhibition ‘Being Seen and Heard Through Art’ and a Walk for Zero Tolerance.
