NDIS Resources

NDIS Carers Online is also an online space that aims to provide information, resources, links, webinars, podcasts and more for carers that may not be able to attend face to face education NDIS sessions. The content is managed by Carers Victoria for carers of people transitioning to the NDIS and implementing the NDIS plan. The information is broken down into themes from Intro to NDIS, Accessing the NDIS, pre-planning and to Managing the NDIS. By breaking down the NDIS journey into modules, carers can opt into content that is most relevant to them at their stage and access at a time that is best for them.
