    1.11.1 REQUEST FOR COUNCIL TO FUND THE

    CONTINUATION OF JETS PROGRAMS ANDSERVICES

    Author: Shawn Neilsen - Inclusion Access & Equity Social Planner, CommunityPrograms

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    A petition with 25 signatures has been received.

    The petition prayer is as follows:

    We the residents of Banyule formally write to Council to raise our concerns and finda suitable solution for the continuation of the JETS Program and services.

    JETS services provides a range of services and unique programs to youth includingpersons with disabilities. Programs have been running for several years do a diverserange of young people.

    Currently the future of JETS is uncertain which has implications for participants andalso for a large number of persons seeking to obtain placement and services.

    We as parents and guardians of teenagers and young adults with disabilities bring toyour attention the significant benefits that JETS services provides to participants andask that the JETS program be financially supported by Banyule City Council with theintent that services can be continued in the future.

    For a modest investment by council, BCC shall be supporting a unique program thathas serviced a diverse range of local residents.

    JETS provides a range services from ages 13 to 25 to over 40 participants and hasbeen at maximum capacity for several years. All participants participate in achievinglife, social and other goals that are not available from other programs or serviceproviders.

    Many goals involve the development of social integration which is a significant stepfor many young people to feel connected with their wider community and worktowards greater life skills.

    A significant benefit to JETS participants is continuation of activities which foster thesocial integration and lifelong learning approach, important aspects in peopleaffected by significant disability.

    In addition JETS have due to demand for its services been unable to provideadditional places for a significant number of youth in the area for some time.

    Ordinary Meeting of Council - 9 May 2016 Page 4

    1.1

    At the Banyule Disability and Inclusion Advisory committee meeting held on April 13th2016, three major concerns were raised specific to the relevancy of the JETSprogram within NDIS, points raised are;

    1. no youth specific social programs for transition

    2. the impact of change on vulnerable young people at a critical life stage

    3. people are seeking one on one support in individual profiling and goal setting.

    We therefore ask for BCC to explore options and financial support to provide for thecontinuation of services given the difficulty faced under current guidelines for theNDIS which limit the financial capacity of individual packages.

    This petition has been received as the landscape of disability services in Australia ischanging due to the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)and associated disability reforms. Through the implementation of the NDIS, existingfunding arrangements and service provision will undergo significant changes. Thisincludes a direct impact on services currently provided by Council that are wholly orpartially funded through other levels of government.

    RECOMMENDATION

    That Council:

    1. Receives and notes the petition.

    2. Strongly advocates to both the Department of Health and Human Services andthe National Disability Insurance Agency for continued funding to support anextended transition period beyond December 2016 for current Jets CreativeArts clients until appropriate choices are available for Jets clients to receivesimilar services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

    DISCUSSION

    The landscape of disability services in Australia is changing due to the introduction ofthe National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and associated disability reforms.Through the implementation of the NDIS, existing funding arrangements and serviceprovision will undergo significant changes. This includes a direct impact on servicescurrently provided by Council that are wholly or partially funded through other levelsof government.

    These changes have required Council to give consideration to its involvement indisability services in an evolving landscape. Council staff have been undertaking athorough review of Councils disability services to better understand our current
