Event description

Description

Does your social enterprise intend to provide services or products to people who are enrolled in the National Disability Insurance Scheme?

Are you unsure of how to program for works providers?

If you answered 'yes' to both of these questions, this seminar is a 'must attend' for you.

Pieta’s training emphasises the huge opportunity for local economic development presented by the NDIS alongside the exciting chance to reshape the role of people with disability as active participants in local commerce and shaping and supporting the growth of new markets.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for Australians with a disability, their families, and carers.

The NDIS will provide about 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life.

As an insurance scheme, the NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.

If you are operating or intend to operate a business that provides services for people covered by the scheme, it is important that you understand how it works.

Note: This event is free for Mill House Season One participants. It is specifically for new and emerging services and providers, rather than transition arrangements for existing disability service providers.

Key Outcomes:

Training Participants will:

  • have a basic understanding of how the NDIS works for the individual Participant.
  • Discuss how the 3 models of Plan financial management affect the way NDIS Participants can engage services and how service providers can work with the three models.
  • Discuss NDIS Registration and if it is necessary for businesses and organisations
  • Explore what types of services / products Participants want to purchase
  • Discuss the different markets presented by the NDIS – age group / services / funding types.
  • Look at the NDIS Price Guide as benchmark for service charges
  • work though an NDIS Service Agreement and Schedule of Support and understand the importance of these documents.
  • Discuss how participant expectations can affect their services.
  • Have a basic understanding of the concept of outcomes and how to reflect these
  • Discuss what best practice means in a business context for the NDIS
