These two articles from Deb Rouget and Teresa Micallef of Belonging Matters and Jaquie Mills of Microards Australia give a fantastic overview of methods of setting up a network of support for a person with a disability that draws on the person’s existing close connections. With fantastic tips and advice, these articles give an insight into ways that people can formalise the support from family and friends to make the most of their NDIS plans now and into the future.

‘The model is based on the Circle of Support concept which gathers family, friends and community around individuals with disability to meet regularly for the purpose of helping the person to plan the life they want to have, problem solve as issues arise, be socially included and be safe.’
