Our UpSkill program is being rolled out across regional and rural Victoria. We want to increase the number of skilled support coordinators and help them respond well to the diverse needs of people with disability.
After a series of workshops around the Shepparton area in November, we will be holding training and information sessions in Mildura (23-25 March 2020) and Swan Hill (20-22 April 2020).
As well as training for support coordinators, we will hold workshops for nursing home staff about the possibilities under the NDIS and to connect aged care providers and skilled support coordinators.
There will also be a workshop in each location for people with disability and their families to help them understand the NDIS and housing.
For the UpSkill Regional Victoria program, we have partnered with the Centre for Ethnicity, Culture and Health and Ablelink. We will also consult with an Aboriginal run service to enhance training content on culturally appropriate services.
The Victorian Regional Readiness UpSkill project was supported by the Victorian Government.
