The NDIS & Housing (Dandenong)
By 2025 the Government is aiming for a 50% reduction in the number of people under 65 being admitted to aged care.
To meet this target, support coordinators and allied health professionals will assist people with disability to leave hospital well with an appropriate mix of NDIS and mainstream supports.
The vast majority of NDIS participants will live in a mainstream housing option.
Part one of this workshop explains the NDIA’s approach to housing and the critical relationship between goals and housing related supports. It describes the supports available under the NDIS to find and sustain a variety of mainstream housing options.
Part two of this workshop introduces Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), a support available to around 6% of NDIS participants who need a modified built experience to maximise their independence. Eligibility for SDA is set out in the SDA Rules 2016.
Part three of this workshop explains how to write a Housing Plan that brings together evidence that a person needs to meet the SDA eligibility criteria.Outcomes
Workshop participants understand how to achieve a timely discharge back to the community for NDIS-eligible participants/paitents.
The workshop will be presented by Penny Paul, Senior Policy and Research Officer at the Summer Foundation. Penny leads UpSkill, an initiative to build the capacity of the NDIS workforce.
