Description

A WORKSHOP FOR PEOPLE WHO PROVIDE SUPPORT:

Support Workers employed by individuals/families or organisations |

Coordinators | Managers | Local Coordinators

The value of quality support cannot be over estimated when it comes to a person with disability getting to self-direct their life.

“In me changing support workers that has probably put me where I am today. I met this young guy who basically changed my life, changed my whole perspective. If I hadn’t met him, if he hadn’t encouraged me, I wouldn't be the independent person I am today”. PETER HALL

Are you one of those quality supporters? Or do you want to invest in your staff ?

Do you or your staff want to feel more confident and satisfied as you support someone to self-direct their life?

Do you want to build a strong foundation for a career in supporting people ?

This workshop will help you understand and develop skills in:

  • The elements of self-direction and how you can facilitate these

  • Robustly supporting the person’s decision making

  • Person-centred practice and how it’s foundational to self-direction

  • How all this relates to the National Disability Insurance Scheme
