PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: Employment supports (ES) and services are offered to people with a work restriction related to disability, injury and illness, by multiple government departments and agencies, insurers, regulators and employers, and by community-based (not for profit [NFP]) organisations. Through a variety of interventions, their aim is to support people with a work restriction in gaining and maintaining employment. This project was commissioned by the Collaborative Partnership to Improve Work Participation (the Partnership). The Partnership is a national system-wide collaboration between the public, private and not-for-profit sectors that works to break down barriers in systems and culture to enable more Australians to engage in good work. This project was an activity of Pillar Three (Improving employer capability) which formed part of the Partnership 2020-2022 Strategy. The objective of Pillar Three was to increase the skills and capabilities of employers to enable individuals with an injury, ill health or disability to enter, remain at, or return to work. Within this remit, this project undertook a cross-sector scan of this landscape of employment supports. Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
International Models of Support Coordination and Local Area Coordination: evidence review report / Lisa O’Brien and Ivana Randjelovic (NDIS)

by O'Brien, Lisa | National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) | Randjelovic, Ivana.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T : National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), 2020Description: 69 p. : ill. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: Support Coordination (SC) is an intervention funded by NDIS as an intermediary service to assist participants to understand and implement their plan, connect them to community or mainstream services, anticipate, mitigate and manage crises, and build the participant’s capacity for self-direction. It is currently funded at 3 levels (Support connection, Coordination of supports, and Specialist support Coordination) depending on the intensity of support and expertise the participant requires. It is unclear if this 3-level model is ‘fit for purpose’ to facilitate intended plan implementation outcomes for NDIS participants. Critical issues include: o inconsistent application of “reasonable and necessary” criteria when including SC in plans; o unclear guidelines for determining what level of SC is required; o conflicts of interest where providers of other funded services also provide SC; and o service duplication particularly for level one (Support connection) which overlaps considerably with Local Area Coordination (LAC) roles.
