Preparing to Plan Resource Guide and Card Set
These resources have been designed and developed to support people and families to think about some things that may be helpful when planning. They are a set of 10 cards, with an accompanying booklet. The booklet has some information about using the cards, and also can be used to write notes down for each card set section.
The Pre-Planning Resources are NOT meant to be a replacement for Person Centred Planning. The resources can be used to complement person centred planning approaches
The resources were funded by the WA Disability Services Commission through the National Disability Services WA as part of a Quality Service Improvement Grant. Please note that WAiS is currently working on developing another 5 set of cards to add to this resource in the areas of Health, Education, Spirituality, Therapy and Safety.
WAiS is happy to offer some support and training around using these cards if necessary. The format of the cards have been specifically done so printing them as an A5 card set is easy. If you would prefer a copy of the resource that is a direct A4 PDF document (and not to print and fold), please click here to contact us.
To print the cards , please follow the advice below:
1. Print the card sets on A4 size paper.
2. Use scissors to cut the white margin off at the bottom of the page.
3. Fold each page in half.
4. Lamination optional!
Supported Decision Making Project
Supported decision making is a term used to refer to a range of practices whereby people with disabilities are assisted to make or implement their own decisions.
Please see our project resources below:
My Life, Your Life, Our Life: A Guide for Flat-mates, Homesharers & Co-Residents
‘I want to share my life with people who matter to me, people I know care about me, like a family or very close friends.
After all, what’s life if you have no one to share it with?’
The Shared Living Resource Guide, is packed with findings and recommendations resulting from an intensive two year project in partnership with people wanting to develop and progress Shared Living support arrangements in a more coherent and consistent basis. The Guide was launched in August 2013, and is now available for download.
The Shared Management Guide
The Shared Management Guide Project, aimed to increase individuals, families and the sectors capacity to successfully offer and utilise self and shared management. Key outcomes of the project include the launch of the Shared Management Resource; ‘A guide for Support Organisations exploring Shared Management’, as well as significant progress with the Australian Tax Office to clarify some grey areas in the legal and technical aspects such as the Private and Domestic exemption and in Care Reimbursement. This resource continues to evolve as relevant legal or regulatory considerations change in regard to delivering Individualised Services. The WAiS Shared Management Guide is now available for download.
