What’s on?

CDAH organises a range of exciting events to continue building the peer work movement in the Hunter. Our events include: Planning Cafe, Catch Up Crew and Speak Up Hunter.


Planning Cafe runs every second month - bringing peers together to talk, connect and learn from each other. Each Planning Cafe covers a certain topic and for each event we invite a speaker to share their expertise and experience with us. Last year for example some of the topics were self-managing the NDIS, housing or how to build your own team of support.

Catch Up Crew is a group of people that has been meeting since February 2017. Each month people with and without disability take over a Newcastle pub to socialise and to build belonging.

Speak Up Hunter is a peer group run for, and by, people with intellectual disability. New members are always welcome! Last year, Speak Up Hunter members collaborated with 3x3 Media to create a hip-hop music clip.

Potential and Possibilities is a series of peer-led workshops working with people with a lived experience of mental illness. The aim is to share some of CDAH’s know-how about the large range of possibilities available when people have control over their NDIS funding and more voice and choice about their support.
