NDIA Has 40 FTE Staff in Geelong Focused On Getting People Out and Stopping People Going In
The NDIA recruited a team to do just this task. The will support local NDIA Staff and LAC’s to stop this happening.
Sometimes Information Does Filter to NDIA Staff or NDIS LAC/ Planners etc
We come across planners or LAC/s at a local level who are not aware of the urgency of getting people out nor of the support they have to get people out. Letting them know about the team in Geelong can help.
MTA (Medium Term Accommodation) Can Help
Medium Term Accommodation funding is available to those living in Aged Care to help them get out quicker. This is definitely worth discussing with the planners.
