Making the Most of the NDIS: Rockhampton

Free
Workshop overview                 

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of supporting people with a disability that is starting soon in Queensland.

This is a series of short workshops that provide information about the NDIS and help people to think about how they can best use the opportunities offered by the new scheme.

You can register for one, some or all of the workshops in the series. People who have attended a Taking Charge of Change workshop are welcome to attend. Places are limited.

Workshops                 

Monday

9:00am – 11:30am  The NDIS – Getting Informed

This workshop provides information about the why, when and how of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Queensland, and things you can do now to get ready.

12:30pm – 3:00pm The NDIS – Starting to Plan

This workshop follows on from the Getting Informed session and will help you to get ready for the NDIS by thinking about the life you want and the goals and aspirations that are important to you. What will a good life look like for you?

Tuesday

9:00am – 11:30am  The NDIS – Understanding Supports – new for 2016

People who have attended a Getting Informed session or Taking Charge of Change workshop can start to explore the funded supports that might complement and strengthen the informal, community and mainstream supports that help create and sustain a good life. How can you blend funded NDIS support with natural supports that come from family, friends and community?

12:30pm – 3:00pm  The NDIS – Managing Your Supports – new for 2016

People who have attended a Getting Informed session or Taking Charge of Change workshop can draw on experience and wisdom from Queensland to assist them in looking at ways they can both manage and direct the support they need to sustain a good life. How can you use the NDIS to have more choice and control?

A light lunch will be provided for people who register for both sessions on the same day.
