Central Adelaide and Hills Psychosocial NDIS Communities of Practice

The Central Adelaide and Hills Partners in Recovery program (CAH PIR) has established a forum whereby information about the NDIS can be shared.

Background

The CoP provides a forum for sharing knowledge, expertise and information between stakeholders who have an interest in psychosocial disability – this will include service providers/organisations who engage with customers who anticipate transitioning to the NDIS, as well as consumers, their carers and families.

The CoP will support capacity building for the sector, providers, and consumers, their carers and families.  Members of the CoP have the opportunity to develop personally and professionally, while working towards solving problems during the NDIS transition.

A useful background resource is the Mental Health Coordinating Council report Guideline for Establishing a Local NDIS Community of Practice to Enhance Learning and Sector Reform, July 2016

Membership

Membership of the CoP is open to consumers with a psychosocial disability, their carers and families; as well as interdisciplinary health care professionals and other staff members working in variety of public and private service providers/organisations who have an interest in psychosocial disability and the NDIS.

Meeting Format

The CoP will meet quarterly. In 2018 the CoP will meet on the 13/3/18, 5/6/18, 4/9/18 and 4/12/18.
