Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

Who should attend:
The Ministry of Health Disability Support Services now include access to Respite (including Carer Support) under Individualised Funding, for eligible families.

This creates new, flexible ways of taking a break. This seminar will explore all aspects of Individualised Funding including Respite.

If you are a disabled person, parent or guardian of a disabled person, you might want more choice about how services will be delivered, when they will be delivered and who will provide your government funded support.

Individualised funding helps you:
- Employ the support staff you want in your life – people who understand your culture, priorities, preferences and lifestyle choices.
- Set your own timetable so support staff come and go as you want, so you can build stronger relationships and enjoy a better social life.
- Source flexible Respite care that best benefits your family (short stay, overnight stay, in-home, in-facility, etc).
- Identify new sources of support.
- Take charge of who enters your life and reclaim your priorities.

Disability Connect now charges $50 including GST for each professional (working in the disability sector) attending our seminars. This can be paid by cash, cheque (made out to our full organisation name Parent and Family Resource Centre Inc.) or direct debit.

We do not accept credit card or Eftpos payments. We are happy to send an invoice at time of booking of a professional and payment is required prior to attendance. Refunds will only be given if you cancel and this must be made at least 24 hours prior to the seminar. Please phone to cancel.

There is no charge for parents or family members attending.
RSVP is essential: 09 636 0351 or admin@disabilityconnect.org.nz
