Supported Residential Services Training

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL PROPRIETORS, MANAGERS & STAFF OF SRS FACILITIES – PLEASE READ

Given the ever-changing circumstances of COVID19 and the Government’s escalating responses, LASA has decided to err on the side of caution and not proceed with SRS workshops until the end of June 2020. This is an appropriate course of action as we seek to limit the risk of infection/transmission within and across residential services residents/clients, service workers and the companies that support our industry.

In light of this, LASA with DHHS has made the decision to postpone all upcoming workshops and attendees will be updated of future plans for alternate delivery. We would like to apologise that we will be unable to deliver valuable content to attendees at this time and for any inconvenience caused.

The Department of Health and Human Services funds Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) to offer FREE, specialised training courses and workshops for SRS staff and proprietors. The training is designed to provide skills and knowledge to assist and improve the safety and quality of services provided to residents.

The Department of Health and Human Services will provide a $50 backfill supplement per SRS employee who attends in recognition of its importance. To claim this supplement, a tax invoice must be sent to LASA within 3 months of the date attended and before the close of the financial year.

LASA’s team of facilitators are experts in their fields and are selected specifically because of their experience in the supported residential service sector.

LASA will endeavor to deliver the training workshops on all of the scheduled dates but please be aware that changes can occur. LASA will make every attempt to contact any registered participants if this occurs. SRS proprietors must ensure that they have appropriately trained staff, relevant to the SRS’ residents’ needs.

Personal support coordinators (PSC) must complete a minimum of 40 hours training every three years in priority training areas.
