Lifetime Support Authority

The All Abilities Abroad project provided a platform for four Lifetime Support Scheme participants to mitigate the negative impact on self-esteem and self-reliance from an acquired brain injury and disability.

They did this by travelling to Tonga to share their skills and knowledge across capacity gap areas identified by a Tongan partner organisation, Naunau o e Alamaite Tonga Association Inc (NATA).

The four participants spent 25 days in Nuku’alofa, Tonga exchanging skills, stories and experiences with NATA staff and members, and with people with and without disability in the local community

Three key factors influenced the project’s peer-to-peer model: the relationships developed, the cross-cultural insights and the individual growth of the participants.

ABC International Development

Maven conducted an accessibility and inclusion technology and computer service assessment for an ABC International Development employee with a disability.

To do this, Maven’s disability inclusion adviser established rapport with the employee through talking about their lived experience of a similar disability and the types of accessibility technology that assists them to participate fully in work. 

Following the Maven assessment, a report was generated listing the key recommendations for reasonable adjustments and technology to support the employee in their role. 

The report will enable us to move forward and make a decision about what equipment our staff member needs,” said the ABC ID Project Manager.
