The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Update September/October 2016:

Well, the NDIS is certainly becoming a reality and brings with it some exciting opportunities. Getting ready for this big change is really important as it is starting to be rolled out in our area. You may have already received some contact from the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to help start you off on this new journey.

 We are running some information sessions at GBSS to help you to understand what these changes mean as well as thinking about what you would like to out in your first plan. We will be contacting you over the next few months to offer group and individual information sessions.

 We would also like to encourage you to attend the following workshops that are being held at GBSS in October 2016:

  • The NDIS Participant Readiness Information Session is open to all people and will give you an update on how to get ready with the most up to date information.
  •  And The Moving Forward Workshop held by Carer’s Australia Qld on Friday 14 October 2016 at GBSS from 9:30 to 2:30pm. This will also help you to understand what is coming our way. This workshop also includes a phone link up to another family that has started their NDIS plan- so will have some very practical information available.
