The NDIS: Getting Informed Express – Emerald workers & service providers
March 14, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of supporting people with a disability in Australia. The scheme will start to roll out in the Central Highlands region from 1st January 2018 with people being contacted from July 2017 to start the access process.
This workshop provides information relevant to families and people with a disability about the why, when and how of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Queensland, and things they can do now to get ready.
This session recognises the important role that service providers and workers have in assisting people to prepare and transition to the new scheme.
Please register your details to attend as places are limited.
This workshop provides information about the why, when and how of the NDIS. You will learn how to access the scheme and what to do to feel prepared to develop a plan with the NDIS when the time comes. What do I need to know to feel ready for the NDIS?
