Meet our Guest Speakers
Everyone has a unique experience in planning for the future of their family member and we know that hearing different perspectives is useful. We hope that our three guest speakers and their experiences will assist you in your own planning as you move forward!
Wendy Stroeve is the parent of Alex, a 25 year old with high support needs. Alex’s life to date has been shaped by a strong family vision of a life lived in connection with others and that offers a wealth of rewarding experiences. His family believes what they do now to share this vision with significant people in his life will be critical in planning a future for him that continues to offer him good quality of life.
Matthew Dimmock is a passionate advocate for his sister and his two children who have a disability. He is guided by a firm belief in the potential of all people to live valued, contributing and connected lives embedded in their local community. He is also passionate about the transformative power of inclusive education on the future lives of all children, and is excited about the possibilities presented by the expanding self-directed funding space in NSW.
Catherine Hogan has a sister and a son with intellectual disability, both of whom live in their own homes. Catherine and her extended family and friends crafted her sister's living arrangements and are responsible for coordinating the day to day supports, both paid and unpaid, that have enabled her to live in her own home for the past five years.
Up until 2012, Catherine had spent 17yrs working at Family Advocacy and has guided hundreds of families in their negotiation with the many 'systems' they encounter and continues to do so. Catherine now has her own consulting business in Sydney.
