NDIS Deep Dive

This five hour group workshop will answer all those questions you have about NDIS – we aim to get you away from drowning or treading water, to swimming a powerful freestyle, or diving wherever you want to go!

Designed for people with disability and their families, this workshop will take you through all the basics, with Tips and Tricks from one of Australia’s most knowledgeable NDIS experts.

Sam Paior and her team from The Growing Space will help you:

  • prepare for your first meeting or annual review,
  • understand your plan and its flexibility (and the legal background that gives you more Choice and Control than you thought you had)
  • figure out Money Management choices and what they *really* mean
  • know what to watch out for
  • understand what all the categories mean and how can you actually use your funds
  • find providers and supports that work for you
  • learn what makes a good Service Agreements and what Service Bookings are all about
  • take control and get it fixed if it all goes pear shaped
  • make the most of the NDIS
