National Disability Services invites all community members who are seeking further information on the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) across Moorabool and the surrounding areas to attend the NDIS ‘Change and Choice’ Community Forum, on Monday 25 July in Bacchus Marsh.
The event will explore the core question from participants, their families, carers, service providers,
and community services: “What does the NDIS mean for me?”
The session will introduce the NDS, NDIA and Latrobe Community Health and address
- The exciting opportunities created for participants, their families and carers under the NDIS, and answer any concerns they may have,
- The key changes for service providers under the NDIS, and how they can prepare for the transition ahead
- The ways in which the NDIS will intersect with schools, mental health support services, carer and respite services, community health, aged care and disability advocacy
There will be a guest speaker from the NDIS Barwon trial site, Giuseppe Prestia from Ermha 360.
He’ll share his first-hand experience of what life has been like transitioning to the NDIS and the positive outcomes it’s had within the community.
The ‘Change and Choice’ Community Forum is an excellent opportunity to learn about what the NDIS will mean for you. The day will include a short break for morning tea, with time to speak to NDS representatives and have your question answered.
NDS, in partnership with Moorabool Council and Merrimu Inc. will also be launching an exciting new Moorabool ‘Communities of Practice’ project. This project will explore how local services can work together to build consumer and community driven practices. Come along to find out more.
Time: 11am – 1:30pm
Date: Monday 25 July
Location: The Supper Room, 207 Main Street Bacchus Marsh (accessible venue)
