Help to understand the NDIS
THERE is often a lot of confusion about how the National Disability Insurance Scheme works, however North Burnett Regional Council is set to make this a little easier with information sessions being conducted during a tour of town halls.
This will provide information about what the NDIS could mean for your family, your carer or your business, all in one place.
These sessions are open to the community and may benefit people who have questions about the NDIS such as, 'Could my child benefit from early intervention?' or, 'Could I be eligible for support services through the NDIS?'
Sessions are also for people who work with local children or adults who may need help or access to support.
It will be an opportunity to talk with parents and service providers who have experience with accessing the NDIS.
You will be able to ask questions of NDIS provider BUSHkids and discuss career options with WorkAbility.
There will also be an opportunity to engage with National Disability Services, Queensland Alliance for mental health and other organisations who can share their knowledge and experience.
The first stop of the tour will be on Wednesday, August 22, at Monto Community Hall between 5-7.30pm.
On Thursday, August 23, the tour will be at Eidsvold Community Hall between 10 am - noon.
It will then proceed to Gayndah Community Hall from 5-7.30pm.
It will conclude at Mt Perry with a session being held on Friday, August 24, between 10am-noon.
