Full Scheme Ahead - A Carers Guide to the NDIS

The NDIS Full Scheme Ahead Information Session is designed to provide a Carers Guide to the NDIS.  It is an entry level introduction to the NDIS that

  • Provides an overview to the scheme,
  • Describes how the scheme interfaces with family Carers, and
  • Introduces processes such as testing eligibility, gathering evidence to make an application to the scheme, and the pre-planning and planning process prior to receiving one’s first plan.

Participants will receive a folder containing slides from the presentation and supporting material published by the NDIS to support candidates through the process.  We will also hear from a Carer interstate who has first hand experience navigating the NDIS.
