This project was about supporting people under 65 (and the organisations who work with them) who may have experienced additional challenges engaging with the NDIS to:

  • find out about the NDIS
  • see if the NDIS is for them
  • think about how the NDIS can help them meet their needs
  • know how to apply to the NDIS

This project worked with over 3,500 people with disability and the workers who support them who were transient, living in supported accommodation, living in caravan parks experiencing housing challenges, homeless, exiting child safety, criminal justice and juvenile justice systems; and from lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, queer, intersex and asexual communities (LGBTQIA). The team worked with people in small groups and created fun and interactive ways to learn about the NDIS, find out what the NDIS can do for them, get tips and resources.

We also worked with organisations to design appropriate activities to help them facilitate information sessions to help their staff and volunteers understand the NDIA, the positive changes it can make in people’s lives and some of the benefits of the scheme to front line workers. Like all QDN projects, this project was built upon a peer leadership model.
