Event Details

National Disability Insurance Scheme - How will this affect you?

The Centre for Rural Regional Law and Justice at Deakin University invites you to participate in a Rural Engagement Forum on the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This forum will be video conferenced to 12 locations across Victoria.

The NDIS is now law and due to commence operation on July 1 this year. The new scheme promises more choice for people with disabilities and their carers but what does that mean for service providers in rural and regional Victoria?

Panel member include:

Jennifer Fitzgerald - Chief Executive Officer, Scope, one of the largest providers of disability services in Victoria.

Elizabeth Manning - Lecturer in the School of Accounting, Economics and Finance, Deakin University.

Phillippa Angley - National Policy Manager, National Disability Services (NDS). NDS has lobbied hard for the introduction of the NDIS and is Australia’s peak body for non-government disability services.

Julie Phillips - Manager, Disability Discrimination Legal Service, a statewide independent community legal centre that specializes in disability discrimination legal matters.

The panel will discuss how the NDIS has come about and what will change as a result of its introduction.

Come along to this interactive Q & A style panel discussion, to learn more about the NDIS and how it might impact your organisation in the short and longer term.
