About the Workshop:

As we move to the NDIS, the relationships between people with disabilities and their families, and the services that have supported them will need to be re-thought by all parties. In this new environment many people are searching for more productive and sustainable ways of working that enable people with disability to have control over their lives, as well as the support they require.

In this workshop Jane will explore a variety of concepts that should be considered as services work with people to negotiate the amount of control they need and want in order to live a typical life in their communities.

Jane has both personal and  professional experience with self direction, and is committed to working at a grassroots  level towards a system of responsive services, and towards arrangements whereby vulnerable people experience greater levels of control over their own support  arrangements.

 

Who should attend?

This workshop is for people who are interested in exploring how self-direction can be supported so that it works well for all parties. This will include people with disabilities, family members, and particularly coordinators and managers of organisations.
