New Opportunities: Wisdom from the NDIS trial sites

These videos are from footage taken our our “New Opportunities for a Good Life: Experiences from NDIS Trial Sites” events.  These one day forums, held in Toowoomba, Brisbane, Rockhampton and Hervey Bay showcased stories by and about people with disabilities and their families who have been involved in various NDIS trial sites from across Australia.

These forums were filled with practical stories of people with disability setting the direction of their own lives. All the presenters were from interstate and there will be a focus on sharing their wisdom and experience of their own personal experience within their NDIS trial site.

Having had experience using the NDIS, presenters discussed:

  • Preparation
  • Creating a vision and planning for a good life
  • Self-directing and self-managing
  • Staying well connected in their community
  • Day-to-day experience of the NDIS

These videos were created for our resource website Bringing the Good Life to Life.
