What to expect

Session 1: Introduction to Micro Enterprise 9.30am to 12.30pm

  • Hear about the significance of having valued roles and contributing to your community and the importance of work in all our lives.
  • Hear about the positive change in people’s lives from owning an enterprise.
  • Learn about how NDIS funding can support this option.
  • Gain an understating of the model of the Micro Enterprise Project offered by CLP Inc.

This session is open to Support Coordinators, LAC & NDIA planners, service providers, other community members, people with disability, their family and allies.

Session 2: Practical Workshop 1pm to 3pm

This workshop session is for people who are ready to explore how a micro enterprise could work for them. We will take a deeper dive into exploring your ideas and passions as the first step and ‘discovery’ of the possibilities.

Session 2 is for people with disability, their family members and allies to stay on and take a deeper dive to learn about whether a Micro Enterprise is for you and what that might look like. *Participants must attend Session 1 as preparation for the afternoon session. A light lunch will be provided for people attending for the full day


When people first meet, one of the questions asked is usually; “So What Do You Do?” … we seek to give people a great answer to that question.

Who should attend:

  • People seeking an alternative to ADE and DES services as the only available work option
  • People who are leaving school and are interested in a highly individual and fulfilling opportunity to contribute, and to be included in the economic life of your community.
  • If you are interested to learn more about what a micro enterprise is and how it could work for you
  • If you want to take a deeper dive into exploring your ideas and passions with a fit to creating a microbusiness and if it for you.
  • If you know a person you know who would benefit from having a micro enterprise as their career.

About the presenters

Jayne Barrett has been leading the Micro Enterprise Project at Community Living Project since 2011, proving that ‘there are opportunities where it was assumed there were none’. This focus on addressing the value of work and striving for meaningful days builds on Jayne’s extensive career strengthening valued roles for people with disability.

Helen Neale is the project lead and host for the event. Helen first became involved with micro enterprise in 2016, when her son Tom was preparing for life after school. She has lived the experience of discovery, enterprise creation, business operation and funding negotiations. Helen has a background in business ownership and project management, and has presented to audiences in Australia and overseas about micro enterprise.

Most importantly, micro enterprise owners will share their personal stories of discovery and operating their own micro enterprise, in their own words.
