Australia Day 2018 - The dignity of risk

Thought Plus
29 Jan 2018

On Australia Day 2018, Australian Unity hosted the Great Australia Day Breakfast at Parliament House, Melbourne. Each year a guest speaker shines a light on a subject close to the heart of our organisation. This year Maryanne Diamond AO spoke about "The dignity of risk". Maryanne is an internationally recognised disability advocate and spoke about how taking risk is a normal part of everyday life and people living with a disability should be allowed to take those risks too.
