Homeshare is likely to become one the most popular ILO models of support amongst people with NDIS plans.
Setting up and running Homeshare arrangements is starkly different from traditional models of in-home support like drop-in support and SIL. Delivering a homeshare program requires organisations to have an entirely new set of operational core competences ranging from recruitment and vetting of housemates to mediation of relationships with family members.
For this full day workshop, we’ve partnered with HANZA Inc (who are the peak body for Homeshare in Australia and NZ and are successfully running a disability Homeshare program) to give practitioners, managers and executives with operational oversight a comprehensive overview of the Homeshare process.
We will cover:
· NDIS funding for Homeshare
· Mapping the Homeshare process
· The recruitment and matching process
· Referral and assessment for Homeshare
· Ongoing monitoring and redesign
We will also touch on key issues including the current limitations of industrial relations, building viable Homeshare ILO quotes and managing risk.

Sally is especially passionate marketing products, services, spaces and experiences for people with a disability.

She is a Director of the Centre for Universal Design and a past member of the NSW Disability Council. Sally was also the CEO of a disability service provider during the Hunter NDIS trial. And, she finished her Masters at Harvard (did we mention she’s dynamic?). One of Sally's three daughters, Nicky, who passed away in 2018, was an NDIS participant for four years. Sally translates her personal and professional experience into a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities for business.
