The NDIS: Getting Informed - Woolloongabba
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of supporting people with a disability in Australia. The scheme will start to roll out in the Brisbane region from 1st July 2018 with people being contacted from January 2018 to begin the access process.
Join us for a workshop and a conversation that provide information about the NDIS and are designed to help people think about how they can best use the opportunities offered by the new scheme.
You can register for either the workshop or the conversation, or both. Places are limited.
9:30am – 12:00pm The NDIS – Getting Informed
This workshop provides information about the why, when and how of the NDIS. You will learn how to access the scheme and what to do to feel prepared to develop a plan with the NDIS when the time comes. What do I need to know to feel ready for the NDIS?
12:30pm – 3:00pm The NDIS – Sharing Practical Strategies
Join us in a conversation about the practical strategies that can help you feel more prepared, confident and ready to make good use of the opportunities offered by the NDIS. We will also explore ways of sharing information about the NDIS with others in your community. What are some of the things people and communities can do to prepare?
A light lunch will be provided for people who register for both the workshop and the conversation.
