Making the Most of Change – Understanding and Managing Your Supports- Robina

April 27, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Making the Most of Change – Understanding & Managing Your Supports

Thursday April 27 –  Robina 

About the Workshop: 

As we move to the NDIS, many people with disabilities and their families are thinking about what a good life for a person with a disability looks like and how to best use the opportunities offered by the new scheme. This workshop will assist people to identify the funded supports needed to complement and strengthen informal, community and mainstream supports that help create and sustain a good life.
It will also explore ways people and their families can both manage and direct the support they need to live a rich and meaningful life. The NDIS will commence on the Sunshine Coast from January 2019. This workshop will better equip people to make informed choices about their supports.

Questions explored in the workshop:
• What are the supports needed for a good life?
• How can you blend funded NDIS support with natural supports that come from family, friends and community?
• What does it mean to direct and manage my own supports?

About the presenter:

Suellen Welch has worked at CRU for over 6 years as a consultant. Her work focuses on promoting, strengthening and defending person centred and directed responses. She has previously worked for several small community based organisations in Brisbane in team leader and key worker roles. In these roles Suellen has assisted many people with disabilities and their families think about how to blend the use of unfunded and funded supports. This thinking also informs the planning for her son with disability to live a full life in his communities.
Suellen believes in the importance of community and the need to work intentionally to build welcoming communities.
