Consumer Participation Training for Consumers (Victoria)

APSU has been delivering the Experts by Experience – training in consumer participation for consumers – since 2007. This training module is one of the main strategic components of APSU’s task to increase consumer participation in Victoria’s AOD treatment services.

The next Experts by Experience training will be held on 16 – 17 April 2015. In this training round we would mainly like to provide the opportunity for those service users that are currently engaged in some participation activities, but have not had the opportunity to attend the relevant training. We particularly encourage all service providers that have one or two active consumers to seize this training opportunity.

There is a limited number of places. We will conduct a brief telephone interview with each applicant before final enrolment.

To apply or for any further information contact or (03) 9573 1776.

Application should contain the following information:
– Full name
– Contact telephone and e-mail
– Address
– Organisation or project that you are participating in

Final date for applications is Friday, 27 March 2015.

This training will be held at SHARC 140 Grange Road Carnegie

This training is free of charge. A light lunch will be provided.
