Week 1: Introduction to the NDIS

This week we focused on the basics of NDIS, how it works and how you can get started on the NDIS Pathway.

Each week we will follow a basic structure so that you know when to look for information

Mondays – Facebook Live, Mick or Myself will jump online and talk about the week. We will go through the plan as well as let you know any updates

Tuesdays – We will release the Carers Victoria Online Snapshot which you can use on your mobile, tablet or computer to work through at your own pace. Each week we will cover a different topic. All Snapshots are available from www.everythingcarers.org.au/ndis if you want to jump ahead.

Wednesday – Webinar. Each Wednesday we will provide a webinar for carers to login to and ask any questions, we will talk about the topic of the week.

Thursdays – Links, news and other resources. We will provide links to resources, other items and information that can further assist you.

Finally on Fridays, we will recap the week in case you missed any posts as well as ask you how you are going and how you are finding the information.
