The Co-Creating Safe and Enjoyable Meals for People with Swallowing Disability training was developed in 2020-2021 for evaluation in a pilot program in 2021. The co-design project was funded by a grant provided by the Australian Government and additional funding through a grant from the Victorian Department of Families, Fairness and Housing.
This training program was co-designed and co-created by a large interdisciplinary group of partners. We would like to express our gratitude to the people with disability, members of the disability community, including advocates and direct support workers and healthcare staff, who generously shared their stories and experiences in order to inform the development of this training and its resources.
This website is designed to help share information about the project and the training and any outputs or impact of the project throughout 2022. It is managed by Prof Bronwyn Hemsley at The University of Technology Sydney and is updated regularly.
