NDIS Peer to Peer Advocacy was a 12-month project delivered from 1 July 2018 – 30 June 2019. During this project we worked with people with disability who may not have access to the help they need from other services or informal supports to move through the NDIS access process.
The project supported over 1300 people with disability with NDIS access, pre-planning and planning. Click here to watch a video to learn more about the Peer to Peer Advocacy Project.
Support provided by QDN
We provided a range of support that included 1:1 or small group support:
- Making an access request to the NDIS;
- Knowing what paperwork is needed for the access request including information from General Practitioners or allied health professionals;
- Getting ready for the NDIS planning meeting; and
- Having a peer advocate support them at their NDIS planning meeting.
The project team included peer advocates who share their lived experiences to inform a person’s NDIS journey. This project was funded by Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors
