LIVING SKILLS AT HOME AND THE COMMUNITY
Individually tailored supports and activities
Supports and activities/programs are designed to meet a person’s specific needs as expressed through his/her Goals and Service Plan. A person with disability currently has his/her Northside Service Plan (MyNSP), which is a fully co-ordinated goal setting process and plan initiated by the individual person with a disability and his/her Case Manager and contributed to by relevant staff, parents and/or carers. These plans are reviewed regularly.
Under the NDIS this MyNSP will be replaced by the NDIS Plan and Northside Enterprise Inc will continue its quality service provision by offering tailored programs, supports and activities chosen by the person with disabilities to achieve his/her goals and which suit best the individual person with disabilities, his/her skills and capabilities and needs.
Community Access & Participation
Training and support of people with disabilities in the access and use of general community facilities, services and activities in order to achieve and maintain real inclusion in their local and wider community. Community based activities and supports usually take-up a good part of each day of service provision or as per the person’s with disabilities choice and need.
Development of Valued Role in the Community
Facilitation and support of people with disabilities in achieving a respected and valued status within the community through volunteer work, membership of clubs, and liaison with other individuals and community groups in order to identify opportunities for people with disabilities to fulfil roles that are typical of other people of similar age and backgrounds.
