Self Advocacy Resource Units’ 10th birthday celebration

On the 3rd of July, The Self Advocacy Resource unit (SARU, had it’s 10th birthday celebration. It was such an awesome event which was held at Melbourne Town Hall.

Michelle Stevens and Heather Lawson both did a great job at representing DBV. Michelle was her hilarious self as usual, making jokes and played the piano beautifully while Heather made a great speech about DBV and the wonderful team work between SARU and DBV.

There were other speeches from all the self-advocacy groups that SARU support. Councillor Beverly Pinder from Melbourne City Council (MCC) spoke about different self-advocacy groups and mentioned DBV. She talked about how MCC has worked alongside DBV and that they have had a lot of great successes.


DBV was well and truly represented and the message of the Deafblind Community was heard.

A big thank you to SARU for supporting DBV and we are excited for the future work together.
