Who Should Attend?

This workshop will be of interest to people with disabilities, and their families with an NDIS Plan.

 Using Your NDIS Funding at CRU:

For people who are self-managing or using a plan manager, it is possible to use NDIS funding at CRU. To help you work out if this event is a reasonable and necessary support that will help you (or your family member) achieve your goals, see the Learning Objectives below. For more information about using NDIS funding at CRU, see our website. As CRU is not a registered NDIS service provider at this stage, people who are Agency managed cannot use NDIS funding to pay fees for CRU events.

Learning Objectives for Workshop 1:

People with a disability, family and friends will:

  • Get started in activating their NDIS plan
  • Better understand the components that make up their own NDIS plan
  • Better understand what they can do if they are unhappy about their plan or a decision in their plan
  • Further tease out their NDIS goals to help to think more creatively about how to best achieve their goals
  • Explore some approaches to recruitment that will make the best use of NDIS support hours to achieve specific goals
  • Connect with and hear from other people with lived experience of disability about practical ideas and strategies that have been useful when navigating the new system
  • Get linked in with information and related resources to further build capacity
  • Explore ways of sustaining efforts and bringing others in so the person with disability can continue to have a good life
