How to write a housing plan – The Summer Foundation Workshop

November 12 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Summer Foundation is running this workshop to explain the Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) pathway. It will build the capacity of NDIS support coordinators and allied health professionals to work with participants to explore their housing needs and preferences and write quality housing plans.

WHO THIS IS FOR:
• Support coordinators  • NDIS allied health professionals

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND:
It is anticipated that only 6 per cent of NDIS participants will be eligible for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA). If you’ve been contracted by a participant who may be eligible for SDA and has funding to reach a housing related goal, it is vital that you provide NDIA decision makers with housing plans that address the SDA eligibility criteria.

PRESENTER:
This workshop will be facilitated by Penny Paul, the Summer Foundation’s Senior Policy and Research Officer, SDA eligibility expert and author of the Summer Foundation’s NDIS housing resources. Penny also leads UpSkill.

TOPICS INCLUDE:
• Current NDIA thinking and approaches to SDA funding
• Using our new SDA Housing Plan Template and Guide
• The critical role OTs play

OUTCOMES:
Workshop participants will understand:
• The evidence the NDIA needs to determine whether SDA is a reasonable and necessary support for an individual
• The importance of addressing the SDA Rules 2016 to promote the needs and preferences of the person you are working for
• How to write a quality housing plan
