Connect Up! Project – Take part now
Take part in an exciting new initiative from Carers WA, Health Redesigned and Eduka Web Design, that allows people with disability to connect through an online social portal. The goal of this portal is to allow people with disability to engage within the community, foster social connects with peers and increase opportunity for physical exercise and recreation. Greater connection within the community leads to improved physical health, mental wellbeing and sense of self.
As part of this project, the Community Capacity Development (CCD) team at Carers WA held 5 co-design workshops where people with disability and their carers provided valuable input and feedback to ensure the project is suitable and practicable for all users.
Connect Up! is now moving into the final stages of development and into testing! While this is an exciting time, Carers WA are asking people with disability to take part in trialing the prototype before going live, to ensure it is accessible, inclusive and as safe as possible for the target audience.
If you would like to part in the testing process and see the first look at this great initiative, please reach out to the CCD team at Carers WA by emailing CCDTeam@carerswa.asn.au
