Lot’s of information sharing going on at the moment around how to spend money.
To be quite serious about it, people with disabilities and their families are still quite unsure about…
The how, what’s & where’s when it comes to using government funding packages which are designed to assist you achieve your personal goals that have been agreed on between yourself and the government.
In Victoria, we call this funding individual support packages or ISPs
My role with VALID along with my colleague Dariane McLean who is a parent of a person with a disability run information workshops that give real-life examples on how to get the best out of an ISP
We are continually hearing from people after they have attended the workshops that they have a better handle on
- Understanding if they had a funding package?
- Making sure that person’s plan has strategies that are focused on achieving goals?
- Finding & communicating with appropriate service providers that respect your goals?
It comes down to talking to the right people who are willing to share their experiences, the good and bad, isn’t that how we learn?
These information workshops listed below are happening in Victoria however can also be delivered over the Internet if you are unable to attend in person
