Using your NDIS funds with CRU

Have you thought about approaching CRU for assistance as you work towards the good things in life?

The NDIS has now been rolled out in Queensland and people have been able to use their NDIS funding to work one-on-one with our consultants and to attend CRU events.  As you set your goals and prepare for plan review, you might like to consider your need for ongoing capacity building and request this in your plan.

Through our Individual Consultancy work you can have a one-on-one conversation with a skilled disability consultant to meet with you, or a family member, to think about your needs, goals and the supports that may be useful to help you achieve a rich, meaningful and inclusive life.

CRU events are open to all people, including people who are not eligible for NDIS support. If you are considering using NDIS funding to attend a CRU event, you may wish to check that the event’s learning objectives are aligned with the goals in your plan. Learning objectives for each CRU event are now available on our website - they are listed in the events themselves which can be found in our event calendar.

If you are self or plan managed, you can access CRU’s services where they meet the criteria for reasonable and necessary supports.

CRU is not registered with the NDIS so our ‘fee for service’ offerings can’t be funded through Agency managed plans.

Please note that when booking CRU events through the Eventbrite online booking system, an invoice will be automatically generated that you can save for administrative and auditing purposes – you will not need any further invoice from CRU.

For more information see our flyer, Using your NDIS Plan and Funding at CRU (PDF), or contact the CRU office.

CRU can assist people to work towards goals in their plan through:

  • Coaching, mentoring and consultations that build the capacity of people with disability and family members
  • Group training and workshops
  • Developing and resourcing peer support networks
  • Providing skilled facilitation, e.g. Circles of Support or planning meetings
