If you work in the Hunter/New England region, Western Sydney, North Sydney, South Western Sydney, Southern NSW or on the Central Coast you have just months to get prepared for the live NDIS roll out in July 2016!
Non government disability organisations in the ACT and Nepean/Blue Mountains have already commenced the transition to the scheme. Eligible people with a disability have been invited to their planning and commencement of the scheme according to their age groups, with total engagement scheduled for the end of 2016.
Make sure you have all the information so you can be a part of the change and ensure the NDIS is the best it can be- invite us to your next meeting to learn more...
The ASU has a dedicated NDIS project officer who can be booked to attend your team meeting or union meeting.
Amanda Carr can provide information about the importance of balancing worker’s rights with greater choice and control for people purchasing services. There are important issues to be addressed if we want to see the NDIS be the best it can be and your voice matters.
