When SDA providers partner with SIL providers it too often turns out to be a case of marry in haste, repent at leisure. In this workshop, we will explore the risks and opportunities for SDA providers looking to establish a SIL provider relationship, including:
◦ Understanding SIL providers and their motives for entering into relationships
◦ Negotiating collaborative agreements, unpacking the risks and opportunities
◦ The types of partnership agreements seen in practice
◦ Why you should be separating housing and support services now
◦ Understanding the future direction of home & living supports and how they may impact SIL

Brent is a bona fide master of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) detail, which considering he is an engineer is not surprising. Brent has built his reputation as one of the sector's leading experts in SDA with involvement in over 50 SDA related projects to date, ranging from parent groups, small organisations, large national organisations, state governments, community housing providers, for-profit investors, developers and many financial institutions. What Brent doesn’t know about SDA is probably the stuff the NDIA don’t know themselves yet.
Brent brings a unique skill set to NDIS Housing, with over 25 years consulting experience in accessible design as well as a lived experience as the proud father of teenage identical twins, one of whom has cerebral palsy.

Rebecca has a knack of understanding the organisational implications from all perspectives and can filter and translate this to the people around her.

We want to maintain the intimacy of our face-to-face sessions and allow people to feel free to share their concerns and challenges so we’ve decided not to record the sessions.
(Note: we will make an exception to this where someone requires the recording for accessibility reasons, but we’ll make all efforts to anonymise the content and remove sensitive information).
