WORKSHOPS

At SACID we think that it is really important that people with intellectual disability and their families have access to information.

OUR WORKSHOPS

When you have information you can make good choices about your life.

One way that SACID helps people to get information is by running free capacity building workshops.

SACID workshops are co-facilitated by our staff with intellectual disability.

Our workshops for people with intellectual disability and family members / caregivers are run for free.
