Successful Service Design in the NDIS
Wednesday 31 January
9:30am - 3:30pm
Adina Apartments Perth
33 Mounts Bay Road
The NDIS goal of the ordinary life requires new service models that enable all people with disability to enjoy the same rights, privileges and responsibilities that most Australians take for granted. In this workshop, we will explore how a citizenship lens delivers better outcomes for everyone. Success involves co-design: learning to engage more closely with the voices of people with disability and their family members and translating this into services that people want and the NDIA will pay for. Organisations who are the most successful are designing services around their organisational strengths and participants' desires.
We will give you the tools to understand and make the most of this NDIS opportunity, including:
Co-design, citizenship and the NDIS 'Ordinary Life'
Understanding NDIS Registration Groups and the NDIS Price Guide
Finding and analysing the right NDIS market data
Testing service feasibility: tools & techniques.
