National Disability Practitioners Over 10,000 members
 

Hi Jessica,

Spring is finally here! To celebrate, we have a collection of fresh new resources for you.

As promised, we're pleased to announce that all of our recorded webinars from the 2019 NDS Quality and Safeguarding Virtual Conference are now available on the NDP website - you can access them via our
NDP Webinar E-Library.

In other news, our webinars and workshops are taking off in the Small Business Digital Champions project. For those of you who haven't heard about it - now is the time to get informed! We're on a mission to help small businesses improve their understanding of the ongoing advances in the digital world and how they can better utilise this knowledge within their non-for-profit organisations.

Get updated and stay current with all the new trends by
subscribing to the Digital Champions e-newsletter or visit our Small Business Digital Champions webpage. You will be able to follow the journey of other small businesses participating in the project.

Enjoy!
