The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission is an independent government agency that regulates the provision of supports and services to participants in the NDIS. It works to improve the quality of NDIS services and supports, prevent harm to and safeguard the rights of participants, investigate and resolve complaints relating to supports and services, and strengthen the skills and knowledge of providers and participants across Australia. 

The commencement of the NDIS Commission in WA is a significant development, and an important part of the approach to building inclusive, respectful and supportive communities across Australia that promote the rights and wellbeing of people with disability.

 

This session will cover the obligations of NDIS providers under the NDIS Practice Standards and the NDIS Code of Conduct. In particular there will be an opportunity to hear about and ask questions in relation to:

Service design doesn't need to be about line items in a price guide -

Presentation and Q & A with NDIS Service Providers 

 - MICHELLE LAWRENCE, OWNER AND DIRECTOR, HALCYON HOMES

Presentation

The architect's of the NDIS had a vision that individualized funding would lead to service innovation and quality outcomes.  

Instead we have a price guide of line items, services designed to meet the line items or providers using line items to create a  revenue stream that looks like the old block funding.  Are we seeing innovation in service design?  

 

Why are we not hearing countless stories of delighted, happy families?  Stories of individuals thriving because the compensation scheme has actually put choice and control back in the hands of the people it was designed to benefit?  Is it time to change tact, collaborate and innovate? What if we focused first on who we serve, rather than creating services from a pricing catalogue?

Michelle will also touch on the issue she hears time and again - housing security.  How do we eliminate this fear?  How do we transfer housing security to NDIS participants and their families.

Samantha Jenkinson is the State Director Western Australia NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.

 

Samantha has been an advocate for the rights of people with disabilities since the early 1990’s and throughout her professional life as a social worker.

 

She has been past chair of the Ministerial Advisory Council on Disability in WA, as well as a previous member of the National Disability and Carer Council. Samantha spent 6 years as a local Government Councillor with City of Stirling and her previous role was CEO of People with Disabilities WA.

 At 31 Michelle Lawrence was the first and only female owner and principal of a client side construction project management consultancy in Perth. 

With considerable time spent in retirement villages and in aged care homes, Michelle had ample opportunity to learn first hand from residents, families, staff and executive teams of the unique challenges presented when seeking optimal and aspiring living options for independent living and aged care both in restrictive legislative and funding frameworks.

Halcyon champions living options for people with disability to live an aspirational life, homes that cater to their capabilities when supported in a built environment that best suits them, but also provides comfort for their loved ones and those that care for them to spend time in their homes either as visitors or co-residents. 

 

Michelle draws on experience her time in the retirement and aged care sector that have enjoyed innovation and big ideas being translated into built outcomes.  She hopes to build on this in the disability sector.
