Understanding the NDIS

These three-hour workshops will cover lots of different parts of the NDIS, including knowing who is eligible for the NDIS, working out what support you can get in your NDIS plan, to using the funds in your NDIS plan to live a better life in the community.

Who is running the workshops?
The workshop is designed and delivered by staff with a disability from AFDO (Australian Federation of disability Organisations). AFDO and its member organisations are run by and for people with lived experience of disability. AFDO Disability Loop is a program that aims to make information about the NDIS easier to find, understand, and use.

There are lots of NDIS workshops, how is AFDO’s different? 

This workshop was developed by people with disability, for people with disability. This is a strength, because it allows the workshop to better focus on the needs of people with disability. The workshop was written using plain language, which makes complicated concepts easier to understand. They aim to make the workshops a safe space where people can share their questions and concerns without worrying about any judgement.

 All workshops are held in wheelchair accessible venues, near public transport where possible, and are free for people with disability and their families! We are also providing a wide range of accessibility supports for attendees with disability, free of charge, to make it easier to participate. This includes Auslan interpreters or captioning if requested.

Complimentary food is available. You will receive a detailed information handbook to take home.

Bookings are essential for catering and accessibility purposes.
