The NSW Public Guardian is holding a number of free workshops in 2019 to improve and increase supported decision making and risk enablement. The workshops are tailored to both front line and management staff across the Aged Care and Disability sectors, with content highly relevant to the incoming Aged Care Standards and NDIS.
The workshops aim to:
the ability of people with disability to make their own decisions
effective steps for providing support for decision making
