IDEASWA aims to provide a rich array of information and resources to benefit disability services in Western Australia.


Disability Sector Training Liaison Project

The Disability Sector Training Liaison Project has commenced with the appointment of David Rogers as the Disability Sector Training Liaison Coordinator. David will liaise between the disability service providers, registered training organisations and the Department of Education and Training to ensure that the training needs of the sector are met.

This initiative is funded by the Disability Services Commission as a result of the Sector Health Check committee report which noted that �effective training and development for support workers is essential to ensure the quality of support for people with disabilities.�
