NDIS help comes to Sunshine Coast

People with an intellectual or learning disability will have the chance to learn about the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), at free Sunshine Coast workshops.

Chair of Queenslander’s with Disability Network (QDN), Nigel Webb, said the aim of the Ready to go project is to empower people by helping them understand what their future could look like with an NDIS.

“We know that people with intellectual or learning disability will represent more than 60 percent of people to receive help under the NDIS. However the messages are sometimes complicated, and we felt many people were missing out,” Mr Webb said.

“The Plan ahead introductory workshops are interactive and use games, drawing activities and other fun ways to learn new information, to help people get ready for the NDIS. They are facilitated by people with disability.”

QDN’s Ready to go is one of 9 projects funded by Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services to help people get ready for the NDIS in Queensland.

QDN is delivering workshops across the Sunshine Coast throughout 2015. The first is in Nambour on 18 & 25 March, followed by a workshop in Bokarina on 8 and 15 April. More workshops and masterclasses will be held later in the year, and there will be online resources for those unable to attend.

The workshops are specifically for people with intellectual or learning disability. Attendance is free. To register phone 1300 363 783 (local call) or visit www.qdn.org.au/readytogo
