One of our members, Natascha Kamp is a P-CEP Peer Leader with QDN and will be presenting on Person-Centred Emergency Preparedness (P-CEP).
Emergency preparedness is a process – not a one-time event. People with FND are the experts in our own lives and planning starts with us.
By having person-centred planning conversations – it helps to build the capability of multiple stakeholders towards making disaster preparedness more inclusive.

The Brisbane North group has been running since February 2021 and is a safe space to connect with other people with FND. The group meets for two hours and when there is a guest speaker, they are usually scheduled for the second hour.
About the venue:
The meeting rooms at the Chermside Library are mobility accessible and sensory-friendly. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the meeting room or you can grab yourself something from Cafe 641.5 inside the main library. If you are catching public transport, the Library is two blocks from the Chermside Interchange.
If you do not have FND but would like to connect with our group, please contact [email protected] to make appropriate arrangements.
Please be mindful that all QLD support groups are run by volunteers who have FND and may have limited capacity for telephone calls. Sending a text message instead of calling is greatly appreciated.
