NDIS Education Project (ILC 2019-2022)

Funded by the NDIA under the stream “Individual Capacity Building”, this project aims to deliver education workshops so that people with disability and their families from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities are better informed about the NDIS. The workshops will provide NDIS information to participants, their family members, community leaders and other significant people in the community, as well as build their skills and confidence to mentor and support others in their community.

Achievements to date

    • 20 workshops delivered in Vietnamese community , Karen community and special schools
    • Blended delivery model adapted to accommodate Lockdowns during COVID-19 pandemic.
    • Workshops are tailored to suit community needs and delivered in a culturally responsive environment.
