He provides mentoring and role modelling to group members. Eddie also plays an active role as an ambassador for Senses; providing training, facilitating workshops, raising awareness of Deafblindness and advocating on behalf of the Deaf and Deafblind Community, all on a volunteer basis.
Eddie, is part of the Defying Adversity Group who are walking the Bibbulmun Track in stages, not only as a personal challenge, but to raise funds and awareness about Deafblindness, Usher Syndrome and Senses Australia.

Project Brief

1. Assist WA disability sector organisations (DSOs) to develop positive complaints cultures which empower people with disability families and carers to understand how to provide feedback and complaints, and feel confident and comfortable with providing feedback and complaints about the supports and services they receive.

2. Develop sector understanding of complaints processes – those both internal and external of the organisation. For example DSO, Disability Service Commission and Health and Disability Services Complaints Office (HaDSCO) processes.

3. Develop sector understanding of reporting and capacity to respond to serious and sentinel events.

4. Ensure staff in DSOs understand how best to provide support to people with disability, their families and carers, and/or how to empower people with disability to provide feedback and complaints and how to respond to people with disability, families and carers when issues and incidents are raised or have occurred.

5. Similarly ensure staff in DSOs understand how they can raise concerns, or provide feedback and complaints about issues or incidents.

Come along and share your views.
