AFDO Disability Loop has been writing a new workshop for people with disability and their families. The three-hour workshops will cover lots of different parts of the NDIS; including knowing who is eligible for the NDIS, working out what support you can get in your NDIS plan, to actually using the funds in your NDIS plan to live a better life in the community.

The NDIS made an announcement about changes to the NDIS pathway a few weeks ago. They promised to give us some more details soon. Today the NDIS posted a media release talks about when and where the pilot will happen, what happens next, and a few other important details.

The NDIS is making some changes to the NDIS pathway.
These changes will be piloted (tested) with a small group of people first, and then introduced to everyone else a bit later. They will include things like face to face planning meetings instead of over the phone; more info in Braille and plain English; a "consistent point of contact"; an easier to use portal; and more.
AFDO is the national voice representing people with disability in Australia.
Would your group or organisation benefit from a presentation on the NDIS?
