NDIS Content Development Specialist
BA, Dip VisArts
Sara is our go-to Content Specialist and the Editor of DSC's NDIS Resource Hub. She personifies the voice of DSC in her own passionate style and prides herself (quite rightly) on her research skills and fact-finding ability. Diagnosed with ME/CFS in 2012, Sara's lived experience of disability shines through in her work and she is a highly skilled, authoritative NDIS commentator. She began her career overseeing innovative Cambodian education projects and has quickly become an indispensable part of the DSC team.
The federal budget: boring to read, but very important to the disability sector. Sara summaries what it says about the royal commission, mental health funding, new disability pension reporting requirements and the famous NDIS underspend.
Support Coordination is a job that requires heart, soul, sweat and tears (hopefully of joy). That is why we are pleased to celebrate a group of exceptional Support Coordinators through our 2018 DSC Provider Award.
Late last year, we collect nominations for the 2018 DSC Provider Award for Leadership. We are now pleased to be able to announce the winner...
The latest quarterly report has just been dropped, setting up the agenda for 2019. Sara combs through the report, finding all the details that providers need to know.
Last year, we called out for nominations for the DSC Annual Provider Award for NDIS Transition. We are excited to award it to a provider who tackled the challenges of NDIS transition with creativity and fantastic stakeholder engagement.
We all know that Tribunal rulings are important, but they are so bloody looooong. Sara’s tips and tricks are here to help you get through the rulings, without taking years out of your life.
This explosive new Tribunal case sets precedents that could redefine how NDIS Participants travel. You might reasonably think you have heard everything that needs to be said about transport and the NDIS, but, as Sara explores, we have all been proved wrong.
An end of year announcement by the federal government that has given us all something to celebrate this holiday season.
2018: it’s had its problems but one thing nobody can deny is that it has been a HUGE year for the NDIS. Sara reflects on all the ways this year has made NDIS history.
