Agencies have a key role in effective policy advocacy, say experts

Laura Cowell is a Sutherland Shire councillor and Australian CEO of Tender Loving Care, which delivers disability services. She said that many people in the community simply don’t understand how complex it is to change or review policy at all levels and how each government tier has different roles and responsibilities.

“Most people don’t actually know the differences between each of those levels and what the constraints are for the people involved,” Cowell said. 


TLC Impact Speaking event

The “Ignite Change Through Connection” Dinner, hosted by Tender Loving Care, aims to showcase the achievements of individuals with disabilities. The conference emphasises equal open employment opportunities, inspires diversity and inclusion, and provides a platform for dialogue on disability and employment equality. Laura was one of the inspirational speakers at this event.
