I want to read this in Easy English

On Monday 4 April Julia Farr Youth (JFY) held their first Peer Support Network meeting for young adults living with disability.

More than 20 people attended to share their ideas and hear from our Guest Presenter Rachael Leahcar.

Rachael talked about her experiences of transitioning to young adulthood and the supports she has in her life.

Attendees told us what they want from future network meetings – they want to learn about travel, moving out of home, supports, community opportunities, employment, new technologies, relationships, study options and more.

Feeling lonely or just want to make new friends? Come join the MDM Club for free. The Club is our disability and NDIS community where you can chat in a safe, tolerant and respectful environment. Our Club members include people with autism, depression, anxiety, mental illness, blindness, deafness and many other disabilities.

The JFY Peer Support Network meetings are held monthly at JFA Purple Orange in Adelaide.

All young adults living with disability aged 17-35 are invited to attend our next meeting on Monday 2 May. We will be chatting about expanding social networks and Relationships Australia SA will be joining us.

It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, share knowledge, experiences and practical tips.
