Making the Most of the NDIS in Dalby, Tara, Miles and Chinchilla

May 23, 2016 - May 27, 2016

Making the Most of the NDIS in the Western Downs

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 & 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…
