National Disability Services Forum - Registrations now open. CALC-participant-readiness-for-providers

NDS is organising the first of a series of workshops to provide practical advice and essential information to CALD participants of the NDIS in the NEMA area

Disability service providers have expressed their concern about transition challenges for individuals from migrant, refugee and CALD NDIS participants.

There are complex questions about how the NDIS will interface with HACC supports, settlement services and the role of existing case management and interpreting services once the NDIS has rolled-out in NEMA.

NDS is organising the first of a series of workshops to provide practice advice and essential information to CALD participants. This event will feature guest speakers from a range of providers and peaks and includes morning tea. The two hour session will address:

1.The interfaces between the NDIS and other systems of relevance (mental health, HACC, settlement services)
2 Support for participants to navigate service interfaces
3 Experience of providers supporting CALD participants to date
4. Next steps: what material/clarity is needed, to ensure CALD participants receive the information they need to ensure smooth transition.

Please email the organiser with any accessibility requirements.
Monday, 27 June 2016 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
