This online event is for NDIS participants, their families and supporters, support coordinators and NDIS service providers.
Individualised living arrangements are as unique as a fingerprint – learn about how they can work to give people the opportunity to live the way they want.
At this online event, you’re in for a treat! We will:
Share ideas on how individualised living can work
Help you with the next steps to getting started
Answer your questions about individualised living
Launch a fantastic new video series and you will be able to hear from the stars themselves
You will meet Ned, who recently moved out of his family home and is living with 2 supportive housemates. Hear about Ned’s home, his living arrangement and learn how NDIS participants and their supporters can get started with their own unique arrangements.
Individualised living arrangements are as unique as a fingerprint, but we know it helps to actually see how they can work. Let’s take the conversation further so more people have the opportunity to live the way they want.
Many people with disability need support to live independently in the community, but don’t want to live in a group home. Join us to build your understanding of individualised living, learn how the principles of person-centred planning together with the opportunities of the NDIS help create a way forward.
We’ll also have plenty of time for questions.
