TIME: 12pm – 1.15pm (AEDT)
A video recording and transcript of this event will be available in the coming weeks.
On November 25, we will bring together people with disability, policy makers and sector professionals to discuss the issues and opportunities around SDA and housing more broadly for NDIS participants.
With the new Federal Government bringing forward the NDIS 10-year review, now is the time to explore how a reimagined NDIS could truly serve the people it was designed for.
What is working and what is not when it comes to housing and supports? What opportunities are there for innovation? How can we advocate to the Federal Government and hold it to account? These are just some of the questions we will look at on 25 November.
ABC journalist Beverley O’Connor will host a panel of experts who will share their knowledge around the NDIS, housing and supports.
After the Annual Public Forum, the discussion will continue with a Q & A based session with a panel of experts from Summer Foundation initiatives including the Housing Hub, UpSkill and Hospital to Home.
The session will discuss how support coordinators, allied health professionals, hospital clinicians and other NDIS sector professionals can work with NDIS participants and families to achieve their housing and support needs and preferences within a reimagined NDIS.
It will be held shortly after the conclusion of the Annual Public Forum in the NAB Arena from 2-3pm AEDT and will be streamed online.
