Lived Experience Facilitator (Casual)
About the roles:
We are looking for 3-5 new team members in all States and Territories across Australia to join our Lived Experience Facilitator crew.
As the Lived Experience Facilitator, you will be responsible for co-facilitating and bringing your lived experience as a person with disability, who has been on or is on a housing journey, to the Summer Foundation’s Housing Hub workshops and projects.
Perhaps you have experience finding or are in the process of moving into your own place such as in a Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), or you may have experience sharing your home with friends or housemates and they might provide you with support. You may live with another person, couple or family in their home, or you’re building your own accessible property.
Whatever the journey, your lived experience in finding (or in the process of finding) a home that fits your needs and preferences plays a vital role in the delivery of our workshops.
The role will work with people with disability and their families, providing online educational and interactive workshops regarding a range of housing options that are available for people who are Participants in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (the NDIS). The Lived Experience Facilitator will also have the opportunity to work on other projects across the organisation.
*Workshops will be held Monday to Friday between 10am and 5pm (5 hours per workshop)
