Northside residents with disability get ready for NDIS

9 October 2015 –

People living with a disability in the Northside are encouraged to attend a local workshop this month to start getting ready for the rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Queensland.

The Queensland Government is supporting a number of organisations across Queensland to run activities helping people with disability, their families, and carers learn more about the NDIS.

The next local workshop is being run by the Community Resource Unit on Wednesday 21 October, 9.30am-4pm at the Kerdon Wavell Services Club.

For more information and for an online calendar of activities visit www.communities.qld.gov.au/ndis

The NDIS will start in Queensland from July 2016, with full implementation by June 2019. People do not need to be registered with Disability Services, or any other Queensland government department to participate in the NDIS.
