Support Workers employed by individuals/families or organisations |
Coordinators | Managers | Local Coordinators
ALBANY—15 AUGUST 2017
PRESENTED BY SUSAN STANFORD & LEANNE PEARMAN
The value of quality support cannot be over estimated when it comes to a person with disability getting to self-direct their life.
“In me changing support workers that has probably put me where I am today. I met this young guy who basically changed my life, changed my whole perspective.
If I hadn’t met him, if he hadn’t encouraged me, I wouldn’t be the independent person I am today”. PETER HALL
Are you one of those quality supporters? Or do you want to invest in your staff ?
Do you or your staff want to feel more confident and satisfied as you support someone to self-direct their life?
Do you want to build a strong foundation for a career in supporting people ?
This workshop will help you understand and develop skills in:
The elements of self-direction and how you can facilitate these
Robustly supporting the person’s decision making
Person-centred practice and how it’s foundational to self-direction
How all this relates to the National Disability Insurance Scheme
