Disability Justice Specialist Support Coordination - Webinar

The use of the term ‘Case Management’ is increasingly being replaced by the term Support Coordination in support of the person-centred approach to service delivery.

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIS) defines support coordination as: 'Assistance to strengthen participant’s abilities to coordinate and implement supports and participate more fully in the community. It can include initial assistance with linking participants with the right providers to meet their needs, assistance to source providers, coordinating a range of supports both funded and mainstream and building on informal supports, resolving points of crisis, parenting training and developing participant resilience in their own network and community.'

This 90-minute webinar explores the application of strengths based Support Coordination for people with cognitive impairments in contact with the criminal justice system. Using practical examples, we will explore the:

  • The various situations/programs in which Support Coordination may be engaged/required
  • The philosophical context and values base that best informs Support Coordination
  • The role and value of stories in various strengths based models
  • Explore life domains (eg education, housing, health etc) and their interactions and impact
  • Examine the role of collaboration: with the person, between agencies, with informal/family networks
