Independent Provider Collective
Independent Provider Collective (IPC)
As the name suggests, the ‘IPC’ is a collective of independent providers. Determined2 believes that working collaboratively with other service providers will offer better outcomes for our participants, that is why we have formed the IPC. The IPC share Determined2’s values and person-centred approaches. We work together for you and can link your information seamlessly between providers to save you the stress and hassle of getting everyone on the same page. Select a service provider from below that you would like to connect with, they will be sent a message to contact you.

Occupational Therapist, Moving Forward Occupational Therapy
Assessments to identify current functional needs, setting of goals, assessing equipment needs and report writing for ongoing funding.
This means that we are all at home more and less able to socialise, as an Occupational Therapist, there are a number of ways that I can help support you through this time, this could be done by virtual means such as video calls, skype or Zoom:
- If you feel that you need increased support or different services within your plan, I can assist you by completing an assessment and report. This can then be used within a plan review to help you to obtain the needed supports.
- Make suggestions and source assistive devices that you may need around the home, these could be things such as tools to help you get dressed with more ease or specialised cushions for comfort since you will be seated more than usual.
- Asses the home environment via video and see what may be needed to support you while you are at home more than usual.
- Work with you to develop short term goals over the next few weeks or months that you could work towards while complying with the current social distancing restrictions. These goals could be around increasing your independence with tasks at home or engaging in a different leisure activity within the home.
If you feel that this support would be beneficial to you, then I would love to discuss this with you further.
