The function of the family network
Ignite Community Network promotes a person-centred approach to ensure that the person with a disability is in control of decision making of their goals, service delivery and the team that will deliver services. Ignite Community Network will establish a family network as a vehicle to promote a person-centred approach.
The family network brings together people within the family environment along with friends, health care professionals, community groups and other identified stakeholders to assist the Individual to set and achieve goals. The family network promotes open communication and provides safeguarding to assist the Individual to remain safe. The Individual is at the centre of the family network and has choice and control as to who is identified within the family network and the roles and responsibilities of network members.
The Family Network Coordinator facilitates the family network. The Family Network Coordinator will use the Individual’s Service Plan to develop the network. The Service Plan will define roles and responsibilities of each network member and will act as a agreement. The Service Plan will identify how support staff will be recruited, hours of work and activities to achieve goals. The family network will ensure that Individuals are recruited based on the needs of the Individual and their cultural and religious beliefs.
