Many organisations have had to suspend group-based services. Any programs that involve the congregation of 3 or more people such as day programs, social, ADE, DES and SLES now need to make very major changes.
In this 45 minute webinar, Roland Naufal and Rob Woolley will discuss:
Ongoing communication strategies
Continuity of support: challenges & opportunities
Workforce deployment issues
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.
Roland’s three decades of disability experience and insistence on doing things better have earned him a reputation as independent and outspoken. He is known for finding hidden business opportunities and providing insights into the things that matter in disability.
Roland worked extensively on disability deinstitutionalisation in the early 90's and has lectured on the politics and history of disability. From 2012-2014, he consulted on NDIS design for the National Disability & Carer Alliance and was the winner of the 2002 Harvard Club Disability Fellowship. Roland has held leadership roles in some of Australia’s best known disability organisations and is now one of Australia’s most knowledgeable NDIS consultants and trainers.
