CPL Support Worker Petra Tawdrous tells us what she took away from the DSW conference! 



"On
Debbie Grant, support workere of the things that drew me to the conference was the sessions about the NDIS. But I came out learning so much more!

It was a great two days - your motivation will be given a kick! You can go back to work and be a better carer for your clients." - Debbie Grant, Mobile Carer
