Multicultural Communities Getting NDIS Ready: Regional Round Table Discussion
8 March 2018, 10.00am-1.00pm
Macquarie Room, Penrith RSL, 8 Tindale St, Penrith

The event will bring together local people with disability from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds, local CALD organisations and leaders, as well as the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), Local Area Coordinators (LACs) and mainstream disability providers to share experiences on the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and identify issues and solutions to improve access to the NDIS by people with disability from CALD backgrounds.

The aims for these get-togethers are to:

  • Help increase access to the NDIS by people from CALD backgrounds
  • Increase the knowledge of the LACs, NDIA and mainstream disability providers of the issues impacting on people with disability from CALD backgrounds eligible for the NDIS
  • Inform CALD communities and people with disability of the existence of local NDIA, LACs and mainstream disability providers and how to access them
  • Develop local recommendations to be presented to the NDIA to help improve the NDIS experience by people with disability from CALD backgrounds.

RSVP: Lauraine Steward, [email protected] or 9621 6633.
