NDIS Snapshots for Carers

Our series of NDIS Snapshots for carers aim to provide carers with an easy and simple way to learn the key things they need to know to successfully manage the transition of the person they care for the NDIS.

Each snapshot has been developed to enable carers to either quickly skim through the headlines on their mobile phone, or explore the detail through a range of videos and links to further reading.
