Workshop Overview

“What will the NDIS offer my family? How can I help my son or daughter live a meaningful life in their community?”

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) starts in the Queensland early launch sites early in 2016.

The NDIS will give people with disability and the people close to them a chance to have a bigger say over their support

This one day workshop talks about what we know about the NDIS, and some practical things people with disability and their families can do to get ready for the NDIS.

We will talk about how families can be thoughtful about using paid supports to build a good life, how to maintain strong family and community connections, and where to start in being prepared and informed in the lead up to the NDIS.

This workshop is for families of young children with disability (aged 0 – 8 years) who are interested in hearing about the NDIS and what they can do now to develop a vision and a plan for the future.

The Presenters

Lisa Bridle and Sue Duncan-Kemp work as Senior Consultants at CRU and each has many years’ experience working within the disability sector. Lisa is also a family member, which has shaped her thinking about creating good futures for young people with disability.
