Home & Living Report Writing

A practical workshop teaching you how to confidently submit a Home and Living Support Request Form to the NDIA (and ultimately, get the supports you’re after).

Why take this course?

The NDIS doesn’t like to make things easy; and Home and Living Support Requests are no exception. In fact, it’s a total mess trying to find out simple details like what’s required in the request form, eligibility criteria, the evidence needed, and how to go about providing this evidence. 

This practical workshop will clarify the eligibility criteria for Home & Living Supports including Individualised Living Options (ILO) and Supported Independent Living (SIL) as well as Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA). You will learn what reports and evidence are needed to submit with a Home & living Request and how to pitch these to the NDIA. By the end, you’ll feel confident knowing what to submit with a Home and Living Request as well as write and review all relevant reports so you can ultimately have the best chance of getting supports you’re after.

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.
