Workshop: Culturally responsive disability support in the context of NDIS
St Vincent de Paul Society NSW NDIS Local Area Coordination program has recently collaborated on a research project with the Social Policy Research Centre at University NSW. The research explored how SVDP NSW LAC utilised the Community Access Network Strategy to support Chinese participants to navigate the NDIS.
The launch of the research report will be an opportunity to find out how to co-design culturally responsive strategies to support participants, carers and family members with culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, to navigate the NDIS. Policy and practice implications from the research shows that people with disability, families and service providers can work together to improve the cultural responsiveness of disability services.
The workshop will:
Launch the research report ‘Culturally Responsive Disability Support-Community Access Network (CAN)’
Share key findings about culturally responsive disability support to Australian Chinese people with disability and their families
Be a focused opportunity for people with disability and their families from CALD, practitioners, policy makers, and scholars to discuss how to apply the results of the research to their own support contexts.
