Meet Libby: Our Individualised Living Program Manager and WDSC speaker


We are thrilled to share that our Individualised Living Program Manager, Libby Ellis, will be speaking at this year’s World Down Syndrome Congress (WDSC).

Libby is our in-house expert on all things NDIS Home and Living. At the event, she will be facilitating a workshop on how to confidently get started with independent living.

What to expect from Libby’s session

Libby’s session at the WDSC is for people who want to take action on independent living but find themselves stuck, especially with the NDIS.

“[The NDIS] can feel complex and overwhelming,” says Libby. “I am also a family member of a person with intellectual disability, and have worked with many individuals and families on this path.”

“In my session, I will be sharing these pathfinding steps.”
