Good Life Films

These video have been made for our website Bringing the Good Life to Life, designed to help people prepare for the NDIS National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Each video shares but a glimpse into these peoples lives as they pursue ordinary lives:  at school, at work, in their own homes, with their friends and family and planning for futures rich with opportunities, relationships and purpose within the communities that know and love them.

All of these stories were created before the NDIS started in Queensland and the people in them have engaged a range of supports – many of which have been unpaid and have grown from opportunities presented from ordinary lives in community.  Opportunities everyone can enjoy when they are seen for their strengths, capabilities and potential.

We wish to thank everyone who participated in these videos.  They were created in collaboration with Peter Hegedus from Soul Vision Films, who also made our 2014 DVD Together in Partnership.
