Getting ready for the NDIS in WA – Planning and Self Management
August 28, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
Workshop One 9.30AM – 12.30PM
Preparing to Plan
Planning is a critical element of the WA NDIS. Before you start the planning process, it can be helpful to prepare so you don’t miss important things that could be included in your plan. In this workshop, WAIS will explain (1) what the WA NDIS planning process involves and (2) what you could think about beforehand to prepare for the planning process. Being prepared can help you feel more confident that the plan will better provide what it is that you or your loved one wants or needs.
Workshop Two 1.00PM – 4.00PM
In the WA NDIS, there are a range of ways you can manage your funding. You may choose to self-manage some or all of your plan. In this workshop WAIS will explain the different options available, in particular Self-Management. This will include the benefits of self-management, what is involved and what your responsibilities would be, especially if you are wanting to hire your own workers.
YOU CAN COME TO ONE OR BOTH WORKSHOPS
Future sessions are planned in:
Bayswater, Broome, Bunbury, Esperance, Kalgoorlie, Kununurra, Melville, Narrogin, Newman and Wanneroo
These workshops are being presented by WAiS (WA’s Individualised Services) and have been supported by the Department of Communities Disability Services (formerly Disability Services Commission) with Information, Linkages and Capacity Building grants.
COST: Free (Morning or Afternoon tea provided. Light lunch will also be provided for people attending both morning and afternoon sessions).
