Able Pod – NDIS Storytelling

Spread the love

In tandem with launching an all-new disability networking company, Able+, founder Ian Coker wanted a strategy to help him reach those who need help in more rural areas of Australia. Those who find it difficult to connect with NDIS providers because they are isolated, and who may not know about the amazing services that are available. Hence, he launched Able Pod.

Through the power of podcasting, Ian is able to reach Australians living with disability, who would otherwise not have the same opportunities as those living near the bigger cities. Throughout the podcast series, Ian has real, raw conversations with individuals who have been affected by disability in their life, whether they are carers, NDIS providers or sufferers themselves. Ian firmly believes that one conversation has the power to change a life, and that conversation starts at Able Pod.

Ian’s core business, Able +, operates with 7 under principles:

  1. Choice and Control – empowering people to take charge of their own lives and choose the services and support they receive.
  2. Accessibility and Inclusion – everyone deserves equal access to opportunities, resources, and services.
  3. Comprehensive Connection – providing comprehensive connection to individuals with disabilities across all aspects of their lives, promoting physical, emotional, social, and educational needs, ensuring holistic care and development.
  4. Empowerment and Independence – empower individuals with disabilities to take control of their lives and achieve independence.
  5. Advocacy and Awareness – advocate for the rights and needs of people with disabilities, raising awareness in society about the issues they face.
  6. Collaborative Partnerships – Foster collaborations with individuals, families, caregivers, community organizations, and government agencies to create a network of support and resources.
  7. Continuous Learning and Innovation – Embrace a culture of continuous learning and strive to stay at the forefront of advancements in disability support and services.
