The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is an Australian government initiative that provides support and funding for individuals with disabilities to receive the supports and access to services that they need.

Nourished Not Deprived provides support to NDIS participants in the form of nutrition and mental health counselling, management and intervention services. These services help our participants to improve their physical health, manage their mental health, and enhance or maintain their functional capacity. Looking to self refer or refer to a participant?

With collaboration being one of the values Nourished holds, our team works closely with all involved in the participants’ care team.
With that, for plan-managed participants, Nourished Not Deprived works with plan managers to ensure that our services are covered by their plan. We provide regular updates on the participant’s progress and communicate with their plan manager as needed to ensure that they are receiving the appropriate level of support.

Nourished Not Deprived works closely with all support coordinators or case managers to develop a tailored nutrition and mental health support plan. We also provide progress reports and collaborate with coordinators to ensure that the participant is receiving the best possible support.

Additionally, Nourished Not Deprived provides education and training for support workers and carers to ensure that they have the knowledge and skills to support the participant in achieving their health goals, specifically in relation to underlying eating disorders.

Nourished Not Deprived is trained and equipped in assisting NDIS participants to improve their psychosocial and functional capacity. Nourished Not Deprived provides personalised nutrition and mental health counselling services to help individuals achieve their health goals and improve their overall well-being.

  1. Personalised Nutrition Counselling: The Dietitians at Nourished Not Deprived work with the individual and support team to develop personalised nutrition plans based on their individual needs and health goals.

NDIS Training Modules

Nourished Not Deprived has developed comprehensive training modules for NDIS registered companies that aim to educate staff on safe nutrition and eating practices when it comes to supporting individuals with disabilities.
Our training module provides a range of benefits for companies looking to ensure their staff members are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to support individuals with disabilities in a safe and healthy way.

It is crucial for support workers to be appropriately trained in nutrition care and know how to implement the interventions provided by practitioners safely. Without adequate training, support workers may not be equipped to provide optimal care to our participants.

Nutrition plays a vital role in the overall health and wellbeing of all, and it is essential that support workers understand the importance of promoting healthy eating habits for individuals with disabilities.

Support workers who are appropriately trained in nutrition care will be able to:
● identify potential issues
● provide appropriate support for individuals who are struggling with disordered eating
● decrease risk of actioning restrictive practices unknowingly.

This can lead to an improved range of positive outcomes, including better physical and mental health, improved quality of life, and increased independence. By ensuring that support workers are appropriately trained in nutrition care and interventions provided by practitioners, companies can provide high-quality care to individuals with disabilities and promote their overall health and wellbeing.

The Nourished training modules are specifically designed and moulded to your specific objectives as a company, with the main pillars of identifying signs and symptoms of disordered eating, providing appropriate support for individuals who may be struggling with disordered eating or restrictive practices, and helping individuals develop healthy relationships with food and their bodies remaining.

One of the unique features of our training module is its focus on providing staff members with clear and actionable SOPs from your company for reporting any concerns about disordered eating or restrictive practices. The module covers how to identify potential issues, how to document any concerns, and how to report those concerns to a supervisor or other relevant authority. By providing staff members with this guidance, companies can ensure that concerns are handled appropriately and that individuals with disabilities are kept safe.
Overall, our training module is an essential resource for NDIS registered companies looking to promote the well-being and independence of individuals with disabilities while meeting their requirements. By providing comprehensive training on safe practices, healthy eating habits, and appropriate reporting procedures, companies can ensure that their staff members are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to provide high-quality care to individuals with disabilities.
