We're going digital.
We're hosting all our March - April workshops online to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
It’s no secret:
Support Coordination can get very bloody complex.
Support Coordinators often provide central support during crises. They also interface with justice, child protection, health, mental health and homelessness services, and navigate complex family dynamics in order to assist participants.
It's not surprising Support Coordinators tell us they're overwhelmed by the sheer volume of knowledge and skills they need to draw on every day.
This 2 day online workshop condenses state-specific information and best practice resources to assist you to confidently support people with complex needs.
The jam packed agenda includes real life examples and will focus on both preventative and crisis responses.
- Complex Support Coordination Best Practice
- Complex Support Coordination Toolkit and Skill Set
- Strategies for mitigating the risk of crisis
- Working with mainstream government services: a state-based focus on health, mental health, justice, housing/homelessness and child protection.
- Understanding who is responsible for what: NDIS vs mainstream government
- Acccessing the NDIS Complex Pathway and working with the NDIA during times of crisis
- Supporting people with complex family dynamics
- Supporting people to connect and maintain relationships with disability support providers
- Balancing duty of care and dignity of risk

These NDIS superstars willl be running your online workshop - but you can expect other DSC Subject Matter Specialists to be making guest appearances.
Sally is our resident NDIS wonderwoman (also fondly known as our ‘pocket rocket’). Don't be disarmed by her humour, she packs a punch with her huge NDIS knowledge, intellect and energy. Sally has diverse experience across financial services, human services, B2B, B2C, for profit and for purpose industries around the world. Sally is especially passionate marketing products, services, spaces and experiences for people with a disability.
Sally is a dynamic trainer and presenter, a Certified Practicing Marketer and lecturer in Marketing at the University of Newcastle. She is a Director of the Centre for Universal Design and a past member of the NSW Disability Council. Sally was also the CEO of a disability service provider during the Hunter NDIS trial. And, she finished her Masters at Harvard (did we mention she’s dynamic?). One of Sally's three daughters, Nicky, who passed away in 2018, was an NDIS participant for four years. Sally translates her personal and professional experience into a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities for business.
Vanessa has extensive disability leadership experience including roles at the NDIA as Director Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) and Director Mainstream Interface and Practice Frameworks. Vanessa managed stakeholder relationships across all levels of government, non-government and community sectors and has a firm grip on the complexity of the NDIS approach to ECEI and the many grey issues at the intersection of the health system and NDIS. Vanessa is a highly skilled and committed operator in disability leadership, service delivery, strategic thinking and policy development.

We want to maintain the intimacy of our face-to-face sessions and allow people to feel free to share their concerns and challenges so we’ve decided not to record the sessions. But we’ve created a recording of all the content (without any attendees) so you can catch up if you miss a session for any reason.
(Note: we will make an exception to this where someone requires the recording for accessibility reasons, but we’ll make all efforts to anonymise the content and remove sensitive information).
If your internet drops out, you’re welcome to join the same session at a later date. We’ve also made recordings of all of the content that you can watch at your leisure.
Yes, we’ve reduced prices across the board by at least 25%.
