Making the Most of the NDIS in Yeppoon, Gladstone, Biloela and Rockhampton

August 29, 2016 - September 2, 2016

Making the Most of the NDIS in Yeppoon, Gladstone, Biloela and Rockhampton

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) starts in Central Queensland in January 2018.


The NDIS is a new way of supporting people with a disability across Australia.  Participants will receive flexible funding tailored to their individual goals.  The NDIS provides an important opportunity to “think big” about what a good life looks like for you.

While this opportunity sounds promising, navigating any new system can be confusing!


CRU warmly invites people with disability and their families to explore how to make the most of support through the NDIS to help you achieve your goals.

We will:

  • Share ideas about ways to get ready
  • Connect with others who are getting ready

Join us for a cuppa and a conversation…

  • Yeppoon – Wednesday 31 August
  • Gladstone – Thursday 1 September
  • Biloela – Friday 2 September

In Rockhampton, join us for one, some or all of our short workshops
