Family Governance Accommodation & Community Participation Project
I have been working with a family in Queensland developing a family governance support model. This is a family who has enjoyed the benefits of self managing but when NDIA made all service delivery for a participant with restrictive practices have to be agency managed moved all their staff to an agency and everything went pear shaped. More money was being used and the quality of support deteriorated. This family was recommended to Jeder to support them due to our focus and principles of Human Centredness, Inclusion and true choice and control. I have been working with this family for 9 months and we are just about there with the model. They have a number of independent supports - HR, Bookkeeper and P&P / Self Audit. We are just about to set up a NFP organisation and things are just about complete. Jeder does the reporting to Safeguards for the Restrictive practices, oversight of the service deliver and CoS.
I now need some help to pull this project / program into shape e.g. contracts, service agreements, what we will do and the costs, promotion material, etc. I have been speaking to another 3 families that are potentially interested in joining us. I would love 3-4 Jeder members to join me and to skill members up to be able to support participants / families in this model. Please let me know if you are interested.
