Making the Most of the NDIS: Understanding Supports – South Brisbane evening

March 2, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Workshop series overview                 

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

This is one of 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.

The NDIS – Understanding Supports  

People who have attended a Getting Informed session or Taking Charge of Change workshop can start to identify the funded supports needed to complement and strengthen 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?

A light supper will be provided.
