NDIS Conversation (1)

The NDIS in WA Conversation 9 and 10 June

People with disability, their families and carers are invited to have a conversation about the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Western Australia (WA).

This event is being hosted by the Disability Services Commission in partnership with the Disability Coalition, a collection of advocacy organisations, consumer representative groups and peak bodies in the disability and mental health sectors. This event will be independently facilitated.

It’s really important to us that a wide range of people from across the State and with different disabilities attend the event. People with disability, their families and carers are invited to register their interest to attend, whether they access NDIS supports or not.

There is a set number of people that can attend due to the venue size. We want this event to be as inclusive as possible. We encourage you to register your interest so we can make sure that there is a diversity of people at the event. We will contact you to confirm your attendance soon after registrations have closed.

Registrations close 18 May 2017.
