    Event description

    About this webinar series: 

    Does having paid support really make your life better? Are there things you would like to change?

    Paid support has an important role in the lives of people with disability. When this paid or ‘formal’ support is not done well or used well, it can become something that gets in the way of friendships, relationships and ordinary life

    In this replay of a two part webinar series find out in webinar 1, on 12 June, how you can set the direction for success with your paid supports and in webinar 2, on 19 Junehow you can develop the skills and confidence to get the most out of paid supports. 

    Register for one or both webinars.

    Webinar 1: Setting the direction with funded supports

    It is essential to know what you want and need from paid support if that support is going to work well for you. This webinar helps by looking at:

    • What is good formal support?

    • The importance of goals and vision.
    • Getting the quality support you
