Event description

Description

This one day forum will examine the emerging role of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in supporting participants to gain appropriate housing with support. The issue is coming to national prominence with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) soon to release a Discussion Paper on housing. Its Chairman, Bruce Bonyhady, has agreed to be the keynote speaker for the forum. Other speakers will include NDIA housing specialists and key experts from government, disability, and housing sectors.


The NDIA has identified that there is a role for the NDIS in working with housing developers, community housing associations, banks and social finance providers to increase access to housing for people with disability. The Scheme’s structure includes ongoing funding for the capital development of housing for NDIS participants. The CHFA Housing, Disability and the NDIS forum will be the first national event that brings together people from the wide range of organisations and sectors that will be responsible for delivering and managing this housing, as well as providing support to the people living in it.


During the morning sessions of the forum participants will learn about current policy, best practice, and future opportunities for housing people with disabilities. The afternoon sessions will be interactive and designed to allow participants to contribute directly to shaping this significant area of policy development. The outcomes of the afternoon sessions will form the basis of a conference communique that will be delivered to the Minister. The program for the forum is being finalised pending confirmation from a number of speakers and will be available shortly.
