Full Scheme Ahead - A Carers Guide to the NDIS

Face to Face Workshops for Carers

The NDIS Full Scheme Ahead Workshops are 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.

To find out when and where the next Full Scheme Ahead Workshop is being run go to our Events Page.

Slidedecks and Resources

The slide decks to our most recent NDIS Full Scheme Ahead Workshops are available to download online.  We have provided this resource, for Carers who unable to attend our face to face workshops due to their location or the demands of their caring role.

We do recommend that if Carers are able to attend they face to face workshop, they should do so as they will benefit from hearing other participants questions and will hear all the additional information provided by the facilitator.  

The slide decks linked below were updated on the 1st of June 2018.
