Emergency and Disaster Management for Support Coordinators

Learn how to support people with emergency planning.

Support Coordinators are now a key support in a participant's emergency planning activities as providers need to quickly comply with the new Emergency and Disaster Practice Standard.

This creates a lot of new processes for Support Coordinators to understand and implement.

This workshop will assist Support Coordinators to:

  • Understand the requirements of the new Practice Standard

  • Learn what service providers will be asking of participants

  • Support changes to their own work

  • See how the response of Support Coordinators differs from service providers, and where efforts need to be best focussed

  • Identify boundaries in an emergency and disaster, and how to avoid catastrophic failures in emergency support provision for participants

An Emergency and Disaster Management handbook that includes a Gap Analysis and other planning resources will be provided

Presenters

Sally Coddington

Sally is our resident NDIS wonderwoman (also fondly known as our ‘pocket rocket’). Don't be disarmed by her humour, she packs a punch with her huge NDIS knowledge, intellect and energy. 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 for people with a disability. Sally is a dynamic trainer and presenter, a Certified Practicing Marketer and lecturer in Marketing at the University of Newcastle. She is a Director of the Centre for Universal Design and a past member of the NSW Disability Council. Sally was also the CEO of a disability service provider during the Hunter NDIS trial. And, she finished her Masters at Harvard (did we mention she’s dynamic?). 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.

Rob Woolley

Our very own Woolly Mammoth, pulls up last in the alphabetical rankings but always gets a place on the DSC podium for combining curiosity with smarts. He knows so much about the NDIS it is scary. Rob lives a personal commitment to sharing his knowledge with an endgame of people with disability in control. Combining lived experience of the early childhood intervention pathway with professional experience of the realities of provider life - he has consistently shown the inability to hold down a real job. His roles in the disability sector have covered direct support work, project management, business development, consulting, ILC-funded advocacy roles and owner-operator of a registered and then unregistered provider (but the thing he is best at is being a very present dad). If you want a consultant or trainer in your corner you will be looking high and low to do better than our Rob.
