What do I do?
I am a fully checked and insured Community sector worker trained and experienced in Disability, Community, and Mental Health support who also has self-managed resilience and Recovery strategies from lived personal experience in these areas.
I use this integrated experience to provide affordable, tailored, and dedicated peer support services in the fields of Autism, Community, and Mental Health support.
I cover all aspects of daily activities, community participation, independent living skills development, growth and resilience self-advocacy mentoring, and consumer advocacy and representation.
Service prices are variable within NDIS caps to ensure I can provide the maximum appropriate support within the NDIS funding allocated to you. Pending full NDIA registration some work will be restricted to self managed and plan-managed NDIS participants, or private clients.
- Community access and activities support for individuals or small groups depending on support needs.
- Consumer peer advocacy and representation with agency services, professional appointments.
- Personal mentoring for optimal outcomes from developing independent living skills, implementing resilience, developing self-management and self-advocacy strategies, and navigating the system.
- Autism a specialty.
In addition ECC is proud to unveil plans for a transition to Community-oriented regenerative farming on Permaculture principles. The aim is to provide quality environmentally sustainable food at affordable prices with priority to low-income households and individuals.
Further bonuses of greater discounts, social connection, and engagement for volunteer participants are included in the plan. This will be slowly developed on a new property near Bathurst, NSW.
What are my experience and qualifications?
I have experience since 2009 mainly working in ADHC group homes for people with profound Autism and Neurodevelopmental Delay, Aquired Brain Injury, psychosocial and physical disabilities as well as positions in Community and Mental Health support and casework. The foundations upon which I build my work are my formal practical training, work experience, and theoretical academic background learning in this sector. I also have skills and understanding acquired from many years of previous personal life experience of Autism with Psychosocial Disability challenges and the Recovery process, as a peer and consumer self-managing their recovery.
Where am I located?
Founded in Warrimoo (“Place of Eagles”) in the lower Blue Mountains, ECC now covers the Blue Mountains and Penrith Area from Hazelbrook in the mid-mountains pending relocation to the Bathurst area.
