Changing Places Australia

The Australian partner of OpeMed has now announced their sponsorship of a Changing Places conference in Melbourne, Australia. As co-sponsor of The Changing Places campaign, we are delighted to continue to spread the word of Changing Places internationally with our colleagues.

The event in Melbourne will take place in September and aims to increase awareness and understanding of Changing Places further and how they can benefit disabled users, family members and carers within local communities.

A “Local Government News” article from January of this year, acknowledged the successes of Changing Places in the UK and commented

“This has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, enabling them to be far more engaged in their own local communities”.

Changing Places first launched in Australia in 2012 and has been continuously supported by a number of charities and consortium members around the country.

More information on the conference will be released soon and will be posted online. For more information about Changing Places please contact us.
