What is Leadership and Peer Support?

Leadership and Peer Support (LAPS) is a program with two types of free support for people with intellectual disability. 

These programs are:

  • Leadership – for people from age 18-35 who want to learn how to become leaders.
  • Peer Support – for people who want to be supported and support other people with disability. 
  • Self Advocacy – supports someone with intellectual disability to be able to speak up and represent themselves.

On April 30th, SAS Blacktown had an Information Day for our Leadership and Peer Support programs.

The Information Day was a great way for SAS to: 

– Invite the community to learn about Leadership and Peer Support
– Talk about the services we run in Blacktown
– See artworks created by Peer Support clients for Colour My Way.
 
Thank you to everyone who attended.
