The workshops have 2 components:
- The first is for service providers. You will receive the complete package of resources enabling you to have discussions around the NDIS and the person’s first plan.
- After lunch a session will be held for community members to walk through the interactive booklet.
- Everyone is welcomed for lunch. During this period we encourage service providers to set up a table to highlight the range of services for community members to collect and discuss.
