Navigating LAC & the Participant Pathway: NDIS workshop 2 of 2 (Perth)
The Australian Federation of Disability Organisations (AFDO) Disability Loop project is proud to announce that our free NDIS workshops for community organisations are now being rolled out.
NDIS Opportunities Workshops
The NDIS Opportunities series of half day workshops have been designed especially for community information, capacity building, and advocacy organisations. On October 18, 2016, Perth based CEOs, senior managers and board members who work in organisations that inform people with disability and their families about the NDIS will be able to build their capacity in four free half day workshops.
The workshops are progressively being rolled out throughout many Australian capital cities over the next few months. Make sure you are subscribed to the Disability Loop eNews so you find about sessions in your state or territory quickly.
The NDIS Opportunities series has been developed to resource and assist small community organisations as they navigate the significant changes that the new market environment brings. These workshops have been specifically tailored to the needs of small community organisations that would appreciate a safe space for thought provoking and sensitive discussions about the opportunities and challenges that they face. Specific, helpful detail is provided to assist with the strategic decisions needed as the ‘transition to full Scheme’ progresses.
- Learn about the ‘transition to full Scheme’ from the perspective of community organisations
- Get easy to understand information and resources tailored for community organisations
- We come to you; workshops will be available throughout Australia in 2016
Opportunities workshop 2 of 2: Navigating LAC and the Participant Pathway
Let’s discuss the changes, opportunities and challenges that the introduction of the large-scale LAC system will bring for community information, capacity building and advocacy organisations. Local Area Coordinators are a vital part of the NDIS. They o er a great opportunity for real community inclusion of people with disability. However, for community organisations there are some practicalities to consider and discuss.
