CRU is one of eleven organisations that have been funded as part of the Queensland Government’s NDIS Participant Readiness strategy to provide free events to assist people with disability and their families to be better prepared for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) as it is implemented in Queensland.
We will continue to offer free Participant Readiness events in Brisbane and Central Queensland regions throughout 2016 and early 2017. Events are also being offered in South West Queensland until December 2016.
These events have recently been updated to reflect new information, learnings and resources that have become available as the NDIS starts to be implemented across Queensland between now and mid-2019.
- The NDIS – Getting Informed sessions provide introductory information about the what, why, how and when of the scheme. They also begin the conversation about things people can do to get ready for when the NDIS starts in a location near them.
- The NDIS – Sharing Practical Strategies are for people who have already attended our Taking Charge of Change workshops or our Getting Informed sessions. These guided conversations are about practical strategies that assist people to share information, prepare and make best use of the opportunities offered by the NDIS.
