Making the Most of the NDIS in Central West Queensland

June 20, 2016 - June 23, 2016

Making the Most of the NDIS in the Central West

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) starts in Central West Queensland in January 2018.


The NDIS will be a new way of supporting people with a disability across Australia.  Participants will receive flexible funding tailored to their individual needs.  The NDIS provides an important opportunity to “think big” about what a good life looks like for you.

While this opportunity sounds promising, navigating any new system can be confusing!


CRU & QDN are working in partnership to provide information and help people get ready for the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

We will:

  • Share ideas about ways to get ready
  • Connect with others who are getting ready


Join us for a cuppa and a conversation…

  • Longreach – Monday 20th June
