Workshop 1: Advocacy and campaigning workshop for community sector practitioners.FULL

Location: Level 7 UTS Building 10, Level 7 Room CB10.07.101

Justice Reform Initiative

People working in, and with, frontline service delivery organisations are  important voices when it comes to informing the public conversation about the failure of incarceration and what works in community led alternatives.  Community sector practitioners and people with lived experience have deep expertise about failing systems, and also ‘what works’ for people when it comes to breaking entrenched cycles of justice system involvement.

However, there are often barriers for community sector workers when it comes to participating in advocacy work.  This workshop will explore these barriers, and look at what is possible for people and organisations that are funded to support people day to day, but are keen to elevate this expertise into bigger picture systems change and advocacy work.

The workshop will both look at the barriers and challenges  for advocacy and campaigning (funding requirements, limited resources and limited expertise), as well as providing concrete advice about key advocacy and campaign strategies including:

This workshop will bring together experts from campaign and advocacy backgrounds alongside people working in service delivery to talk about how to make social change while working on the front line.

Workshop 2: ADHD – the missing piece in the Justice puzzle

Location: Level 7 UTS Building 10, Level 7 Room CB10.07.102

ADHD is a neurological disorder affecting young and old across the lifespan. It is widely recognised as creating a vulnerability to entry into the justice system. It can be quickly assessed and easily treated.

International evidence demonstrates that a significant proportion of the population passing through the justice system experience unidentified or unmanaged ADHD – far exceeding the statistical norm.

In this interactive workshop presented by ADHDx we will discuss:

We also explain how ADHD can be treated and the difference that can make.

Together we will explore a future of effective ways of minimising the symptoms and the impact of ADHD throughout the justice journey – from first contact to reintegration, and the immensely positive impact that supportive management can have on the individual and the community.
