The first training course is focused on questions of access and eligibility for the NDIS. It provides an overview of the NDIS with regard to the initial application alongside practice guidance and examples. The course will give housing workers the ability to assess whether their tenants would be eligible for an NDIS package, and an understanding of the types of supports that might be funded by the NDIS.
Participants will also discuss the role of the community housing worker in different contexts and get an overview of other support and service providers available to assist tenants in preparing an application for NDIS funding.
It would be suitable for:
- Front line staff interacting with community housing tenants
- Housing managers
