Summer Foundation launches new co-design project

As part of our ongoing commitment to improving the lives of people with disability and their families, we are launching the Feedback in Supported Accommodation Resource (FISAR) project. 

The Summer Foundation, in partnership with the Housing Hub, will collaborate with people with disability and their supporters to create new resources to help them share feedback, make complaints and shape the services they access. 

The 2-year project has been funded by the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission in response to issues raised in the Own Motion Inquiry Report

It aims to help NDIS  participants better enact their rights around housing and supports and map a pathway for raising issues when things aren’t right. The project will also seek to change the approach and mindset of providers to ensure participants have full choice and control around their supports. 

New resources created as part of the project will be co-designed with people with disability, their supporters and providers. 

This will be done through a series of workshops to draw on the expertise and lived experience of people with disability, their families and close others, and support providers. The findings from the workshops will inform the structure, design and content of the resources.
