CRU was 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.
Over the three years we saw over 12000 people in rural, remote and metropolitan Queensland. We also created a number of resources, that we have shared below, designed to help people with disability, their family and friends to make the most out of the opportunities presented by the NDIS.
Our Participant Readiness for the NDIS workshops have now finished, but some of the resources we created for these workshops, including a number of videos on people’s experiences of the NDIS. These can be found on our YouTube Channel and in our Resource Website: Bringing the Good Life to Life.
We also worked with the families of people who use Adult Support and Respite Services (AS&RS), the Queensland Government’s accommodation and respite support program. CRU provided information about the NDIS transition process and the opportunities that the NDIS will provide for their family member.
