The Summer Foundation is looking for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants to create personal digital stories that capture their experience of hospital discharge, housing or living as a young person in aged care.

Your stories will be used to help the health system, aged care sector and the NDIS improve the way they interact with people with complex disability – and with each other – to improve outcomes for people in the future.

HOSPITAL DISCHARGE EXPERIENCE

We’re looking for ten NDIS participants across Queensland, NSW, Tasmania and SA, to create personal digital stories that capture your experience of hospital discharge.

These digital stories will form part of a training package that will be used to help hospitals and the NDIS achieve smooth discharge from hospital back into the community as the NDIS rolls out across Australia.

EXPERIENCE LIVING IN A NURSING HOME

We’re looking for eight NDIS participants across Queensland, NSW, Tasmania and SA, to create personal digital stories that show how the lives of younger people with disability, who are living in residential aged care (RAC), can be improved.

Examples of positive outcomes could be: receiving NDIS funding, creative models of support and/or transitioning from RAC to more suitable housing.

These digital stories will be used to build knowledge within the aged care sector so that better outcomes can be achieved for younger people living in nursing homes across Australia.

The shortage of appropriate housing for people with high and complex disabilities is a huge problem.

The Summer Foundation is holding a series of workshops with people from around Australia who are likely to be eligible for NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation payments, to gather information on what new housing for people with disability could look like. This information will be used to influence governments, developers, housing providers and investors, to make sure that future accessible housing meets the needs of the people who will use it.
