Who Should Attend: If you are a disabled person, parent or guardian of a disabled person, you might want more choice about how services will be delivered, when they will be delivered and who will provide your government funded support. Individualised funding helps you;
- Employ the support staff you want in your life – people who understand your culture, priorities, preferences and lifestyle choices.
- Set your own timetable so support staff come and go as you want, so you can build stronger relationships and enjoy a better social life.
- Take charge of who enters your life and reclaim your priorities.
- Source “respite” care that best benefits your family.
- Identify new sources of support.
