We would like to invite you to the third webinar of the Cultural Conversations series: Person-centered planning with a cultural lens.

You may have missed the last two Cultural Conversations webinars that were held on 28 May and 5 July.

In webinar I, we heard from Kerri Colegate, Margaret McGuiness and Michael Riou who supported an initial discussion in relation to best practice support planning alongside and in partnership with participants from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander background.

In webinar II, we heard once again from Kerri Colegate and Margaret McGuiness and we welcomed Linda Cresdee, Aboriginal Health Manager from St John of God Hospital in Midland. During this session, we looked at a lived experience example, and the complexities of supporting an Aboriginal person with support needs across NDIS, health and mental health services.

Now, we invite you to the third webinar of this series: Person-centered planning with a cultural lens.

In this next session, we will look at how we can ensure that supports provided to Aboriginal families and individuals are working in a culturally responsive way and that service providers are adopting Aboriginal ways of being during planning and service provision. We will work through a lived experience situation and discuss solutions to the complexities that we so often work with.

Within this webinar we will once again hear from:

Kerri Colegate – Kerri is a Noongar woman and Director of KM Noongar Consultancy Services who is a consultant across many governmental and non-governmental services in WA including providing guidance and support to the NDIS in relation to services for Aboriginal people, linkages to universities, cultural competence service development and many other roles.

Margaret McGuinness – Specialist Support Coordinator, social work background, and who has held previous roles in People with Exceptionally Complex Needs (PECN) program as well as Regional Intensive Support Coordination (RISC) where she has supported Aboriginal people.

Guest speakers will be advised. This webinar will be an online zoom forum.
