Brisbane – Real Stories of the NDIS – New Opportunities For a Good Life

Community Resource Unit Ltd. is hosting a one day forum in Brisbane that showcases stories by and about people with disability and their families who are using the NDIS. Presenters from Queensland and other states will share their experience of using the scheme. Presenters will talk about their experience of creating a vision and planning for a good life, preparing for a planning conversation with the NDIS, transitioning from school, self-management and using a plan manager and living in a home of their own.

Evening Discussion for Brothers and Sisters: What will the NDIS mean for me and my family?

This conversation evening will be a chance for brothers and sisters to discuss what the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is likely to mean for their family member. The NDIS is gradually rolling out across Queensland and is a major change for how services are provided. It brings the opportunity for people with disability and those closest to them to have a greater say over their support arrangements. In navigating this new system families will do best when they are well-informed and prepared for these changes. This session will provide a brief update on the NDIS so far and Queensland based brothers and sisters whose family members are already in the scheme will share their experiences and reflections as a basis for discussion.
