Workshops to Prepare for Individualised Funding

We’re sure you will agree there is so much information going around at the moment about the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). So how do you make sense of it all? One great way is to go along to one of the many free workshops that are being offered around the state.

These workshops guide you through the process of getting ready for the NDIS. You have the opportunity to talk to people that are already managing their own supports. They share their experience of what works and how you can also make things work for you. 

Below you will find a list of these workshops offered in the coming months by a couple of different organisations.
