MHA - tenders - carer/consumer NDIS engagement workshops

Tenders invited to develop training that builds capacity for carers and consumers to engage with NDIS

National Tender to Design and Deliver NDIS Peer Education Workshops

Mental Health Australia has opened of a national tender requesting Expressions of Interest to design and deliver peer-developed and facilitated workshops that will help mental health consumers and carers to engage with the NDIS.

The successful consultant will develop and deliver a NDIS mental health peer education module in each state/territory, tailored to local conditions and designed to:

•improve understanding of the operation of the NDIS and the principles which underpin it among people with psychosocial disability and their carers
•build the capacity of people with psychosocial disability and their carers to exercise choice and control
•encourage and enable people with psychosocial disability to move towards self-management, greater independence and meaningful community inclusion.

The successful consultant will also establish mechanisms to enable effective re-delivery of the education module beyond the life of this project, for example through a train-the-trainer component delivered to peer workers, or through drawing on the skills of existing peer facilitators.

Expressions of Interest can be submitted electronically to  by COB Friday 15 January 2016 (AEST). For further information and the full selection criteria click here.

These workshops are a core component of Mental Health Australia’s Mental Health Consumer and Carer Capacity Building Plan, which has been developed with the advice of the NDIS Mental Health Consumer and Carer Advisory Group through Mental Health Australia’s NDIS Capacity Building Project. This Project is funded through the Australian Government Sector Development Fund to build the capacity of mental health consumers, carers and service providers to engage with the NDIS.
