VALID Projects

VALID are currently working on these projects:

 

The P.S. team want to connect with people who lived in institutional state care:

  • have minimal or no active family support
  • rely solely on services for support

P.S. aims to support the commitments made by the Department of Human Services when institutions were closed and people moved into the community.

The P.S. team will:

  • identify the supports people have to live a good life.
  • share information with people who might need more support to live a better life.

PS is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services until June 2022.

New Solutions for Services for One

New rules introduced on 1st July 2018 require all NDIS registered providers to register with the NDIS Commission if they are using a regulated restrictive practice.

These rules also apply for families who are running a service-for-one for their family member with a disability.

Inclusion Australia and VALID are working with families running services-for-one and the NDIS Commission to help families running services-for-one understand the new rules and get prepared.

Together we are developing an auditing model that is sensitive to the needs of families and plain language tools to help families understand the new rules.

The project is funded by the NDIS Quality an Safeguards Commission.

These resources will be finished by June 2021.

Co-Creating Safe and Enjoyable Meals

The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) are leading an inclusive, interdisciplinary and collaborative team to co-create a training course for people with disability, direct support workers, family members and NDIS service providers on swallowing disorders and mealtime management. VALID are part of this project team.

The course will be designed to support NDIS providers to meet registration requirements in relation to the delivery of safe and enjoyable meals while also reducing the risk of choking death and increasing the nutritional benefit of the meals.

This project runs from July 2020 to 30 June 2021.
