News and events

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of supporting people with a disability that is starting in Queensland soon. Taking Charge of Change is a full day interactive workshop which talks about what we know about the NDIS, and some practical things people with disability and their families can do now to get ready. Making the Most of the NDIS is a new series of short workshops that provide information about the NDIS and help people to think about how to best use the opportunities offered by the new scheme.

For information on these workshops, please click on the link below to access the NDIS website:
