The "Understanding the NDIS" workshop was run multiple times throughout Victoria in 2018-19 for people with disability, families and carers.  However, we wanted to help those who could not attend the workshop in person and therefore missed out on the information at the time.  So we filmed the workshop, and it has been divided into 9 videos which have been placed on our YouTube channel.

The workshop explains things in plain, easy to understand language, and helps to increase your understanding of the NDIS and will build your confidence in dealing with the NDIA.

All videos have Auslan interpreting, captioning and audio description. A transcript for each video is also available.

The workshop handbook and fact sheets are available in PDF and Word and are written by people with disability, and are in plain language.
