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 Disability Loop asked readers “what do you need?” Lots of people completed the survey. Most people want AFDO Disability Loop to be even more busy. Many of you also want us to run more events. Your top three topics Disability Loop topics were the NDIS, Disability Advocacy, and organising your supports We just want to say thank you to everyone for participating in the survey and being involved with AFDO Disability Loop.

Would your group or organisation benefit from a free presentation on the NDIS?
