We're going digital.
We're hosting all our March / April workshops online to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
And we're pretty excited about the new format.
The time to start building SDA has finally come.
NDIS Participants who want to move house are entitled to Support Coordination hours to explore their options. The Support Coordinators’ role in this process is crucial but incredibly complex, involving many different areas of NDIS and housing policy.
This full day workshop will give Support Coordinators the information and tools they need to be able to guide a person through the process and help them submit the right documentation and evidence for the NDIA. We will cover:
- An overview of NDIS independent living funding streams and pathways including SDA, SIL, ILO
- How to access NDIS Home Modifications and Assistive Technology for the Home funding
- Mainstream housing opportunities and options
- Contemporary housing approaches for people with disability
- Housing tools, resources and connections relevant to Support Coordinators
- How to review Allied Health Assessments
- Submitting housing documentation and evidence to the NDIA
NB: This workshop is not designed for Support Coordination beginners. It's expected that learners have a strong understanding of the Support Coordination role and NDIS policy basics. If you need to brush up, consider our Support Coordination 2 Day Intensive.
DSC has decided to make all our March & April workshops online events, instead of face-to-face.
For any workshops that have been booked for May or beyond, we will advise you by the end of March about whether these will also be converted to online events. If you want a full refund for any event you have booked with DSC, just please let us know.
DATES & VENUES
9:30am - 3:30pm
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.
Brent is a bona fide master of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) detail, which considering he is an engineer is not surprising. Brent has built his reputation as one of the sector's leading experts in SDA with involvement in over 50 SDA related projects to date, ranging from parent groups, small organisations, large national organisations, state governments, community housing providers, for-profit investors, developers and many financial institutions. What Brent doesn’t know about SDA is probably the stuff the NDIA don’t know themselves yet.
Brent brings a unique skill set to NDIS Housing, with over 25 years consulting experience in accessible design as well as a lived experience as the proud father of teenage identical twins, one of whom has cerebral palsy.
