Summer Foundation Annual Public Forum


People at different stages of their journey to living happier, more independent lives in SDA will share their stories. We’ll also hear from policy makers and sector professionals about how to streamline the SDA journey.

Let’s get together to celebrate how life-changing SDA can be for people with disability and discuss what changes are in play to make it a reality for many more.



Beverley O’Connor (ABC News 24) will lead the panel at this year’s forum.
