Intro to Home and Living: Supports in the home

Implementing Support Budgets: Supported Independent Living

SIL funding is changing. Program viability demands we respond with both an operational and financial mindset.

We will cover:

  • Are your Agreements helping or hurting?

  • What can we charge for and how?

  • Preparing for recurring issues

  • New ways of supporting people


Brent Woolgar

Brent is a bona fide master of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) detail, which considering he is an engineer is not surprising. Brent has built his reputation as one of the sector's leading experts in SDA with involvement in over 50 SDA related projects to date, ranging from parent groups, small organisations, large national organisations, state governments, community housing providers, for-profit investors, developers and many financial institutions. What Brent doesn’t know about SDA is probably the stuff the NDIA don’t know themselves yet. Brent brings a unique skill set to NDIS Housing, with over 25 years consulting experience in accessible design as well as a lived experience as the proud father of teenage identical twins, one of whom has cerebral palsy.
