Finding the perfect place to call home
What’s Mandy been up to ?
With our purpose of helping people live a good life clearly in mind our Central Referral Coordinator Mandy has been hard at work establishing an Interagency Networking Forum. The forum will bring key agencies from within the disability sector together to discuss the challenges faced by people looking for a place to call home and the challenges agencies face in providing suitable and sustainable supported accommodation.
Working together we are committed to tackling issues such as the extended timeframe in processing NDIS funding and low occupancy rates in all of our houses. Everyone at the meeting was open to collaboration and sharing of referrals which will ultimately provide organisations the best opportunity to sustain their business while ensuring people find the right place to call home. The first meeting was held at the National Disability Services (NDS) Office in Perth on Thursday 12th December and was a resounding success. We’ll keep you posted on the forums progress.
