The Summer Foundation will launch Welcome Home, our compliance education package for registered providers of specialist disability accommodation (SDA) on 10 May 2021.
Our SDA Quality & Safeguards Project Manager Rosie Beaumont, said the package was designed to help SDA providers understand their obligations under the SDA Practice Standards and explore a rights-based approach to service delivery.
The free package of compliance education resources provides a comprehensive explanation of the SDA Practice Standards and includes 6 training modules, management tools, factsheets, policy guides, videos and podcasts.
The topics covered include:
- Rights and Responsibilities
- Conflict of interest
- Service agreements
- Enrolment of SDA properties
- Tenancy management
The Welcome Home package will be available for self-paced learning on the Summer Foundation’s soon-to-be launched online training platform, Summer Learning.
Rosie said a series of Welcome Home webinars will be rolled out from June this year, giving SDA providers the opportunity to discuss a rights-based approach to service delivery and how well common management practices align with the SDA Practice Standards.
