Pathfinders has expanded into the disability sector and is now a registered NDIS provider, offering services in the New England North West and Mid North Coast of New South Wales through the Support Your Path program.
Support Your Path
Pathfinders’ Support Your Path provides a flexible, individualised person-centred service with participants at the heart of all decision making to ensure that we support them in working toward individual goals and dreams to live their best life possible.
Support Your Path’s focus is on maximising choice and control for participants. The program will concentrate on enabling strong links with mainstream services as well as family and community supports to help people with a disability reach their goals of being able to participate more socially and economically in their communities.
There are a few aspects of the Support Your Path program that make it an optimal choice for those seeking assistance.
We’re looking to lead in the area of truly flexible and person-centred service provision and to enhance the quality of service and lives of our participants through this service. Our program’s approach allows individuals to take ownership of their supports, valuing each person’s opinions and choices. In addition, we’ll be operable outside the nine to three model to provide the needed flexibility and availability that participants are seeking.
From an employee standpoint, we’re also focusing onboarding long-term, quality support workers that we match with participants based on similarities and interests to provide a more personalised, one-on-one experience.
Support Your Path – Your Life.
This program is for participants seeking one-on-one, group and residential supports to access the community and gain greater independence, obtain employment, build capacity within their community and achieve goals as set out in their plans.
These supports include accommodation tenancy, assistance with accessing and maintaining employment, assistance with personal activities, assistance with life stages and transition, travel and transport, development of life skills, household tasks and participating in the community.
Support Your Path – Your Choice.
This program is for participants who are looking for assistance in implementing and managing plans, researching options and in pre-planning for their planning meetings with the NDIS.
Support workers assist participants with co-ordination of supports, as approved in their plan, who are seeking assistance in co-ordinating their services, future planning and goal-setting, exploring options within the community and resolving points of crisis. In addition, Your Choice will offer pre-planning workshops to participants, families and carers who are seeking support in readiness for their meeting with an NDIS planner or Local Area Co-ordinator.
These workshops will equip families and participants with appropriate knowledge and wording to ensure they achieve the best possible outcome in their NDIS plan.
