I had a chat with Alison Cox during the conference, she works at the Uniting Church in Queensland. She told me about her story as a mother of a daughter with a disability and her ‘heart for those marginalised’.
She’s attending the conference to learn more about inclusion in the disability sector. She feels the Uniting Church Queensland are doing a brilliant job at including many of those who are marginalised but she really wanted to learn more.
She belongs to an extremely welcoming congregation – St Pauls Stafford Uniting Church in Queensland, and this has helped enormously in her life. She often thinks about the struggles those with disabilities may have in relation to ‘accessibility’ and this is something she feels should be improved.
