Offering greater stability for providers and participants, Programs of Support can be delivered across a wide range of services from both Core and Capacity Building budgets. Not all existing services will fit naturally in a Program Of Support, which is built around time-limited blocks of regular support. Success will require new approaches to service design, engagement and administration.
This workshop will:
- Explore the details of the most up-to-date NDIA guidance on Programs of Support
- Analyse the alignment of current services with Programs of Support
- Uncover the changes required to deliver Programs of Support compared to more traditional services
- Identify best practice in existing services that fit the Programs of Support model
- Unpack where Programs of Support can fit in different service types

Ann is the very model of a modern Major General, a woman who gets stuff done at DSC with serious NDIS commercial smarts and an inimitable straightforward style. She has worked in the disability, mental health, and aged care sectors for over 25 years in a diverse range of management roles for both not-for-profit and for-profit organisations.
Prior to joining DSC, Ann led the transition of a national organisation to the NDIS, developing Core, Capacity Building & SDA services in trial and rollout sites. Ann has first-hand experience with system and process review, acquisitions, the integration of merged/acquired services and the NDIS registration process across four states,
Ann has established and run a number of social enterprises and her experience includes designing, creating and implementing new services and products across employment, accommodation, community inclusion and training.
Rob has worked in and around the NDIS since its inception, including as owner-operator of a provider in a trial site. As well as this, his roles in the disability sector over the last 15 years have covered direct support work, project management, business development, consulting, and ILC-funded advocacy roles. As Founder and Director of a values-based NDIS service provider, he guided all areas of an organisation supporting several hundred people. Rob led every element of the organisation's setup and growth, from back-end systems and governance through to service delivery models, day-to-day operations and frontline worker training. He has experience across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors in Australia and the UK including Board and Committee of Management roles. Combining a lived experience of the Early Childhood Early Intervention service with professional experience of the realities of life as a provider, Rob has a personal interest in ambitious service models and sustainable organisational structures.
