Adelaide NDIS Opportunities Workshops (9, 10 August)

The NDIS Opportunities series of half day workshops have been designed especially for community information, capacity building, and advocacy organisations. Over the two days (9-10 August 2016), Adelaide based CEOs, senior managers and Board members who work in organisations that inform people with disability and their families about the NDIS will be able to build their capacity in our series of free half day workshops.

The workshops are being progressively rolled out in Australian capital cities over the next few months. Make sure you are subscribed to Disability Loop eNews so you can find out about sessions in your state or territory quickly.

The NDIS Opportunities series has been developed to resource and assist small community organisations as they navigate the significant changes the new market environment brings. These workshops have been specifically tailored to the needs of small community organisations that would appreciate a safe space for thought provoking and sensitive discussions about the opportunities and challenges they face. Specific, helpful detail is provided to assist with the strategic decisions needed as the ‘transition to full Scheme’ progresses.

There are four (4) half day NDIS Opportunities workshops. The Adelaide workshops will be held over two days (9-10 August 2016) at the ibis Hotel Adelaide.
