QDN delivered the Bright Sparks Project to almost 1000 people with disability in South-east Queensland between November 2016 and June 2017.
The Bright Sparks Project delivered workshops by and for people with disability, helping participants better understand their bills, compare electricity plans and access the supports available if they experienced financial difficulty.
Bright Sparks workshops, resources and tools were co-designed and co-delivered by QDN’s Energy Champions who were people with disability.
QDN also engaged with another 6,000 workers and allies who supported people with disability through disability and housing services.
QDN’s Energy Champions were people with a broad range of lived experience of disability and included people who had visual, hearing, physical and intellectual disability.
As part of the project, QDN developed a video and a workbook. Check out the Bright Sparks Project video and handbook below, where you can learn more about how to save on your electricity bill.
“The talk was very clear, easy to understand and informative. There should be more projects like this. The speakers were clear, polite, calm, informative and honest..”
