Road Trip to Monto, Biloela, Theodore and Taroom

August 10, 2015 - August 13, 2015

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) starts in Queensland next year.                             DOWNLOAD FLYER

The NDIS will be a new way of supporting people with a disability across Australia.  People who currently receive disability support will need to move to the new scheme between July 2016 and June 2019. Other eligible people with a disability, who do not currently receive support, will also be able to access the scheme.

CRU is really pleased to have this opportunity to travel through parts of Banana and North Brunett Shires to talk with people about the new NDIS scheme, what might be possible for people with a disability and their families and what people can do now to get ready for when the NDIS starts in Queensland.

If you would like to talk through the opportunities the NDIS might bring then please join us for a cuppa and a conversation.  These events are free to attend and we are open to one to one or small group conversations.  We will be in:

  • 10 August – Monto
  • 11 August – Biloela
  • 12 August – Theodore
  • 13 August – Taroom

Even if you are unable to attend one of these sessions we would love to hear from you so please give us a call on 3844 2211, or email us:  cru@cru.org.au.
