Deb Herbert

Peer Facilitator

Deb has worked in social justice and social change roles for numerous years in both advocacy and campaigns positions.

She hopes to see and aims to work hard for a world of inclusivity and equal citizenship where we look for more similarities with people with disabilities and see less difference.

She challenges ablest views and hopes to help reframe them with positive representations of people living with a disability.

Wants to challenge models of disability, where people with lived experience of disability are not seen as full, valued and included members of our community.

Deb and Chris had a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome for their daughter Elsden and are proud member of the T21 community.

Deb was born in England but had been adopted by Australia for over 20 years. Married to Chris, he secretly would like to be a rock star. She has two children Elsden, who is the 5th Wiggle and Frankie who Deb is hoping will go on to play for her favourite football team, Sunderland. The latter is the least likely to come true!
