Individualised Funding Seminar in Sydney

Forsight Board members and senior management attended the NDS ‘Leading the Way’ Seminar at the Sydney Hilton on Sunday 12th February 2012. Mike Bailey, Hilton McKenna, Andrew McRobert, Toni Alexander and John Allsopp attended along with Trish Wetton and Miriana Gazivoda.

Everyone enjoyed the full day of interesting speakers talking about topics, including person-centred planning and individualised funding. By July 2014 a new funding arrangement will be put in place by NSW Ageing, Disability and Home Care that will radically change the way disability programs are funded in the future.

There will be challenges along the way and Forsight Board and management are making sure they are up there with the best.
