Leadership and Social Weekend for Adults with PWS
October 16 @ 6:00 pm - October 18 @ 1:00 pmNZD20 – NZD40
We are very pleased to announce the details of the first PWSA(NZ) weekend to be held for adults with PWS.
WHERE: The Surrey Hotel, Grey Lynn, Auckland.
WHEN: Friday October 16th (dinner 6pm) until lunchtime on Sunday October 18th. (Note new date due to Covid-19.)
COST: Registration is $40 per person (includes accommodation in twin rooms and meals) / $20pp for day only attendance (meals only).
PROGRAMME: The weekend will have a focus on advocacy and leadership, but will also include plenty of time for social activities.The programme is likely to involve activities that develop self-advocacy skills and having a leadership role in the work of the PWSA, such as defining supports needed and involvement in the development of resources. You can view the Adults with PWS Leadership Group webpage to read the recommendations that were made at the last meeting which was held at our Lake Taupo camp. The weekend programme may also involve discussion around topics such as nutrition and a visit to a local attraction. Full programme details TBA.
SUPPORT: We would like to invite our adults with PWS to attend with a support person who could be either a Support Worker or a parent / other family member (such as an adult sibling), or even a family friend. If a Support Worker usually supports more than one person with PWS and feels able to do so during this weekend, we would not require 1:1 support.
REGISTRATION AND FLIGHT SUBSIDIES: We have a limited budget for this weekend so places may need to be restricted to those who expressed interest before July 31st. Due to high interest, we may also need to give first priority for rooms to those travelling from further afield. (Please assume that a room will be available at this stage for those who have already expressed a preference to stay overnight and we will let you know if we need to request a change to day only attendee.)
