Event description

Description

The relationships between people with disabilities and their families, and the services that have supported them 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.

This workshop will not describe the details of self management. Rather, participants 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.

Topics that will be covered:

  • Working towards rich and meaningful lives

  • Authority & control on a continuum

  • Positive relationships between services and people with disability

  • Negotiations – expanding on what people might have a say over

  • Building capacity

  • Embedding these ideas in organisations for structural change


This workshop is for people wanting more choice and control in their life regardless how their NDIS funding is managed and for services wanted to respond to individual needs.

This workshop has been subsidised as part of the Imagine More ILC initiative - funded by the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Visit www.ndis.gov.au for more information.
