P-CEP Leadership profile - Geoff
What are you learning from the group?
"I’m learning to be prepared for all kind of emergencies and to give information to my deaf blind peers in the Hunter NSW."
Would you encourage others to do it? If so why?
"Yes. There is always room to learn more information. You can listen to others first hand experiences of all different kind of emergencies."
"I am enjoying learning about emergency preparedness because it raises awareness for my peers."
What is the P-CEP Leadership program?
QDN has been working with people with disability in Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia, and the Australian Capital Territory to build their leadership skills and capacity to help make their own plan and support others with Person-Centered Emergency Preparedness. P-CEP Peer Leaders raise awareness of needs of people with disability in emergency and disaters and to their peers, community, service providers, emergency and disaster management teams.
We are still seeking three people from NSW to be part of the program, so if you are interested please contact QDN on 1300 363 783 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
