We’re partnering with The Housing Hub to broaden our offering in Support Coordination focused on specialist disability accommodation. See how this collaboration is a win-win for everyone.
People with disabilities who have complexity in their lives require an extra level of service coordination. This is where a Specialist Support Coordinator can make all the difference.
The word ‘independence’ is a term that not everyone understands, especially when it comes to the NDIS and disability support services. It’s an exciting time to work in the disability sector – there’s a lot of transformational change happening and it affects how we’ll deliver our services.
With 1 in 5 Australians having a disability, disabilities either directly or indirectly affect a large portion of the population. However, our environment, particularly in dense cities, can still take steps to improve inclusivity and accessibility for everyone.
LGBTQIA+ identifying people are present across most, if not all cultural and social groups in Australia. These people and the organisations that advocate for them continually highlight that increased consideration, understanding and acceptance of their identity and sexuality is essential to their wellbeing as a community. Individuals and organisations that work with LGBTQIA+ identifying people with a disability need to be aware of these considerations and the impact discrimination can have on the people they support.
Everyone with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is different. However, there are often similarities that people with ASD may need support with to maximise their ability to live a fulfilling life.
Whilst the specific reason for entering aged care varies, a common cause is the lack of other suitable accommodation options that are available.
Fortunately, individuals and groups have more recently started to discuss ways in which these issues could be addressed.
Those who know Kollen, either as a Support Coordinator, colleague or friend, understand just how passionate he is about the disability sector, NDIS and OnSide’s mission. We sat down to find out the ‘why’ behind OnSide and how he came to found a company that specialised in Support Coordination.
The purpose of a Support Coordinator is to facilitate capacity and to assist in the implementation of your NDIS plan. For the duration of the NDIS plan, Support Coordinators work towards setting up the right supports to foster independence and for OnSide customers to achieve their specific goals. As such, the job of a Support Coordinator will vary.
OnSide specialises in ensuring you are maximising your NDIS funding. We know that allocating funds can be a confusing process, and our role is to streamline the process for you and make sense of everything.
