Taking Charge of Change: Ipswich

August 16, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

Workshop overview

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) started in the Queensland launch sites in early 2016 and is rolling out in other places in Queensland between July 2016 and July 2019.

The NDIS will give people with disability and the people close to them a chance to have a bigger say over their supports.

This one day workshop talks about what we know about the NDIS and some practical things people with disability and their families can do to get ready for the NDIS.

We will talk about what it takes for people with disability to have a good life; the role of family and friends; choice and control and what it will mean to take charge of the change ahead.

This workshop will help you think about where to start, how to stay connected and informed as we move towards the NDIS starting in an area near you.

A light lunch will be provided.
