Description

More than Just Accommodation - Creating A Home and Exploring Housing in the NDIS

The NDIS provides funding for reasonable and necessary support to people with a disability to reach their goals and live an ordinary life. For most people, ‘an ordinary life’ will entail leaving home at some stage; So we are following up on Valued Lives Peer "Talking About" series which explores possibilities and innovative housing arrangements and opportunities for creating a home and opportunities in the NDIS.

Presenter: Bronia Holyoak
Bronia is CEO of Valued Lives Foundation, a peer-led community organisation in WA. Valued Lives has been assisting people to implement their NDIS in Perth Hills since July 2016 and have gained a wealth of knowledge, experience in all aspects of operating in the federal model.

Key Topics
• Clarifying what home really means,
• Imagining beyond possibilities you know e.g. programs,
• Creating and holding a personalised vision for home,
• Addressing needs,
• Developing a range of supports,
• Housemates,
• Getting un-stuck, and
• Stories about people who are enjoying living in their own home with a range of supports.
• Exploring Housing and Support opportunities in the NDIS


There will also be the chance to hear from a parent who has already been through the NDIS planning process, who will share her experience and answer your questions about the NDIS planning process.
