Making the Most of the NDIS in Maranoa, Murweh, Paroo and Balonne

May 9, 2016 - May 13, 2016

Making the Most of the NDIS in the Southwest

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) starts in South West Queensland in January 2017.

DOWNLOAD FLYER

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.

What goals do you have around home, work, or education? How about your friendships and interests?

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 warmly invites you to explore how you can make the most of support through the NDIS to help achieve your goals. Worker sessions are also available.

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