Partnership in Self-Directed Supports

I want to read this in Easy English

This event explores how people living with disability and their families have built support partnerships with C-Change, a small community agency in Glasgow, Scotland. Event participants will discuss with C-Change founder, Sam Smith, the key factors that have helped these partnerships emerge.

The conversation will focus on the practicalities of setting up self-directed supports, including if people need to somehow be ‘ready’ before they can arrange their own disability supports, how people ask for this from the NDIS (or whoever their funder is), the myths that can put people off the idea, how people deal with risks that worry them, and how people might build a partnership with a community agency.
 
The event also focuses on information that DSO staff and peer network facilitators can take into their networks, to assist network participants explore ways to arrange self-directed supports.
 
In addition to DSOs, the event is open to people living with disability, family members, and staff working in advocacy, information, capacity building, planning and brokerage.
