We are continuing our work to ensure young people in nursing homes get access to the services and support that they desperately need through the NDIS.
We work at both a grassroots level and a policy level to influence change. Our NDIS Connections Practice Guide and digital stories based on two years of practice wisdom build the capacity of workers and families assisting our target group to engage with the NDIS.
One of the key challenges to ensuring there are suitable housing options for people with disability and complex needs is establishing a successful NDIS housing market. The Summer Foundation has been working to identify some of the key elements of a successful disability housing market, and will create prototypes to support the development of the sector and encourage new ways of thinking:
