Event description

Description

Hello and thanks for being part of the NDIS community with Latrobe Community Health Service,


Who are we and what do we do?

Latrobe Community Health Service delivers a wide range of health and disability services. We work in partnership with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in order to support people to access NDIS funding and services and foster links to the local community.


What can we offer you?

The NDIS system is still quite new and it can be challenging to navigate a different world of choosing service providers and managing funding.

If you are currently one of our NDIS participants, you may have some NDIS supports that have not been accessed. This means that there may be some items or services that you could receive through NDIS and we’d like to make sure we are supporting you to do so.
If you have an NDIS plan but you feel that you could make better use of your current plan, we’d love to invite you to attend one of our workshops. We are running a series of six free workshops where you will have the opportunity to learn more about your plan and how to make the most of your NDIS funding. The sessions will be small, held at our local offices and include plenty of time for questions with members of our Local Area Coordination team.


What will be covered in the workshops?

- Understanding your plan

- Budget categories – core, capital and capacity building supports

- Putting your plan into action

- Plan management types

- Connecting to a provider

- Negotiating support and making a Service Agreement

- The role of a Plan Manager and Support Coordinator

- What to do if your service providers aren’t doing what you expected

- Understanding the Myplace participant portal


When and where are the workshops?

Thursday 29th August 10.00am-11.30am Bayswater office
