NDIS and Housing

  • February 1st, 2022 1:00 pm

This UpSkill workshop, brought to you by the Summer Foundation, is designed to build the capacity of support coordinators and allied health professionals to assist National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants find suitable housing that reflects their goals, preferred living arrangements and support needs.

This is an interactive workshop and there will be practical exercises, group discussion and opportunity for questions and answers.

Accessible and affordable housing is a major problem and we cannot promise a silver bullet. But we can help with some innovative ideas and some useful tips to help make a person’s housing goals a reality. We will share successful stories where ‘out of the box’ thinking has made housing dreams come true.

Why you should attend:

Most people with disability will probably not need or be eligible for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA).

At this workshop we will discuss mainstream housing, home modifications, assistive technology, capacity building, as well as support models that reflect a person’s goals and preferred living arrangement.

Topics include:

  • NDIS and Housing interface
  • Mainstream housing and innovation
  • Personalised housing solutions to support a person leaving hospital or residential aged care
  • Short term solutions – STA, MTA and emergency accommodation
  • NDIS supports including assistive technology and home modifications
  • Person centred approaches to building sustainable support models – including ILO, SIL and daily living

Who is this for:

  • Support coordinators
  • NDIS allied health professionals

Workshop facilitator: This workshop will be facilitated by Linda Hughes –  Support coordinator and NDIS expert, advocate and the the Summer Foundation’s UpSkill Lead
