Minister welcomes My Learning Passport

Minister for Disability Services, The Hon Coralee O’Rourke MP, has congratulated QDN on its commitment to improving the lives of people with disability, with the launch of a new online NDIS

workshop.

My Learning Passport was launched at Queenslanders with Disability Network’s Annual General Meeting on Saturday 17 October – another important step in helping people with disability get ready for the NDIS.

Minister O’Rourke sent this special message to QDN members:

Message from the Minister:

Thank you for the invitation to attend your Annual General Meeting today, and sorry I’m unable to join you due to Community Cabinet in Bundaberg.

I know Queenslanders with Disability Network does great work in the community.

Today’s launch of the new My Learning Passport is another example of how your organisation is dedicated to improving the lives of people with disability – something I feel very passionate about.

This will be an invaluable tool to assist people with intellectual or learning disability to get ready for the roll out of the NDIS from next year.

There’s no doubt the introduction of the NDIS is incredibly exciting, providing greater choice and control over how services are provided.

But it will also be a big change, so it is essential that we do everything we can to prepare for this landmark reform.

I’d like to thank QDN for your commitment to this new online tool, and to preparing Queenslanders for the NDIS.

Kind regards

The Hon Coralee O’Rourke MP

Minister for Disability Services, Minister for Seniors and Minister Assisting the Premier on North Queensland
