Group 3

Designing individualised Home and Living supports 

Online Workshop – Zoom
Monday 5 December 2022
TIME: 1pm – 4.30pm AEDT

As the NDIA shifts its focus to living an ordinary life at home, there is much to learn about how to explore and design  an ordinary life through individualised support. 

Support coordinators and allied health professionals are uniquely placed to support the development of innovative and individualised support for people with complex support needs. 

This workshop will:

  • Take a dive into what person-centred practice looks like
  • Unpack notions  about 24/7 paid support 
  • Go through the person-centred process of exploring and designing individualised supports 
  • Provide examples of innovative solutions to meet support needs of individuals

This workshop via Zoom, is facilitated by UpSkill Lead Linda Hughes and Vivien Williams.
There will be practical exercises, opportunity for group discussion and questions and answers.

Learning objectives 

  • Use a person-centred approach to the design and implementation of home and living supports
  • Work with participants to identify their home and living preferences and support needs 
  • Identify risks and safeguarding strategies
