Event description

Description

All Australians need access to affordable, appropriate and secure housing and the NDIS is a game changer that can enable people with disabilities to live more independently and to think about different housing and support solutions.

At this forum, we will share stories from your peers about some of the innovative housing and support models that are currently available in Western Australia through individualised NDIS Plans.

Our Guest Speakers are:

Marita Walker, Branch Manager, Scheme Innovation, NDIA who will present on Individual Living Options (ILO); the background and scope of ILO, living and support models available and the application process should people want to think about exploring these models into the future.

Marita is part of a national team responsible for Strategic Advice, Research and Inclusion that is currently focused on enabling the effective implementation of both Self-Management within the NDIS and WA's Individual Living Options to be effectively transitioned, with the developed approach to be adopted nationally.


Bronia Holyoak - CEO, Valued Lives Foundation who will present on 'Preparing for Planning - Exploring Housing and Support Options' - Bronia will talk about various models of living and support and discuss what 'home' looks like for people seeking NDIS funding to help them to live as independently as possible.
