Support Workers 101 for NDIS Participants and Carers

Do you want to know:

  • How to find good support workers?
  • How to pay them?
  • How to make sure they do what you need?
  • How to know what you want them to do?
  • How to keep the good ones (and move on the not so good ones)?

This is the workshop for you!

Come along to an three hours of all the basics you need to know to find, hire, contract, brief and keep good support workers. We’ll also go through what to do to stop it all going pear shaped?

We’ll help you write your own Support Worker Brief – to help prevent misunderstanding and know who is responsible for what!

Led by The Growing Space team, you will get a chance to get some answers to those sticky questions (What do I do if they crash my car, or break my favourite jug, or break my privacy?), and learn a few little tricks and tips to getting the most from your support workers.

You will get some great handouts and checklists to help you outline your needs in useful ways.

TITLE: Support Workers 101 for NDIS Participants and Nominees

WHO: All NDIS Participants and Nominees (but only those with a Self or Plan Managed NDIS Plan will be able to claim the cost of this workshop from their plan) Limited to 20 attendees


DATES: Wednesday 25th March 2:30pm – 5:30pm

WHERE: Mount Gambier (address TBC)

TICKETS: Each ticket is for one participant or nominee $157.0o

MUST BRING:  Bring a list of your burning questions!

CAN I CLAIM THIS ON NDIS? If your plan is fully Self Managed, you can claim this session from your Core or Capacity Building Supports, or from your Support Coordination budget (if that budget line is Self or Plan Managed – you’ll need to check carefully). If you are plan managed, it should be reimbursed, but do check with your plan manager.

When should I book? Now. This is likely to sell out quickly.

This is a new course, co-designed and presented by NDIS participants and carers, by popular demand, with thanks to an NDIS ILC Grant which supported the costs of developing this workshop and training the presenters.

Please be aware that workshop attendees may be filmed to be used as part of expanding The Growing Space’s online resources. Please advise us in advance if you do not wish to be filmed, that’s OK but we’d be really grateful if you will allow it.
