Why take this course?

The Final Report of the NDIS Review Recommendations has been released (ok, we have an inkling you already knew that). But as is often the way in the land of the internet – misinformation has been spreading like wildfire. Especially in relation to ‘Recommendation 4: Navigators’ and what this all means for Support Coordination. 

It’s time to get the facts straight and cut through the clutter. 

This three-part Navigator Webinar Series is delivered by experienced Support Coordinators, business owners and political geeks who truly want the best outcomes for participants and Support Coordinators. 

The best bit? We’re not just going to tell you what you need to know – we’re going to build your skills to learn, engage and adapt in uncertain times. We’re talking about how to:

• Understand exactly what has been recommended (and what has not) and the impact this could have on you as a Support Coordinator 

• Understand the complex political process that led to the recommendations and what the next steps are 

• Gain practical skills in communicating with your team and clients during uncertain times (that is, replace fear-mongering with trust and certainty – phew) 

• Start clever business planning during volatile times – all while sticking true to your values and objectives

You’ll leave feeling better prepared to navigate the current Support Coordination climate (as an individual or business) AND better prepared to communicate with your team and clients. Just all-round better. 

Who’s it for?

Anyone operating in the Support Coordination space (it doesn’t matter if you’ve been around for 10 years, 10 minutes or you’re interested in getting started – this is for you)

When she's not busy building capacity, Annika rolls up her sleeves in the garage where she's building her own campervan!

His writing has been published in academic journals, The Conversation and the ABC. He has also worked for NGOs in the Home and Living sector, working directly with other individual participants to help fill funding gaps. Todd has a deep passion for political history and sorting through electoral redistributions (He really does! Ask his wife). Todd also spends his free time reading multiple books simultaneously, following the mighty Port Adelaide Power, and assessing the plausibility of plots on too many TV teen dramas

Sally has diverse experience across financial services, human services, B2B, B2C, for profit and for purpose industries around the world. Sally is especially passionate marketing products, services, spaces and experiences that include people with a disability.

Sally, who finished her MBA at Harvard, recently returned to university to pursue a Master’s in Disability and Inclusion (did we mention she’s dynamic?). Her dream is to do a PhD and she's putting it out there to hold her self accountable.

One of Sally's three daughters, Nicky, who passed away in 2018, was an NDIS participant for four years. Sally translates her personal and professional experience into a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities for business.

Lisa Duffy

After starting out as a Physiotherapist, Lisa found her passion in complex case management and working with people with a disability to navigate their options in the 10 years prior to the NDIS roll-out.

Since the rollout in NSW, Lisa's specific interest areas are working with people to gain NDIS access for the first time and planning for NDIS reviews, with a particular passion for 'translating' the complexities of the NDIS, and working with people to build their skills, capacity and knowledge about the NDIS so that they can be informed, empowered, and objective self-advocates.

It's a passion that doesn’t go unrecognised: we’re talking about the winner of the award for Most Outstanding Support Coordinator at the 2022 Australian Disability Services Awards!
