What will the NDIS mean for you? Workshops in Cairns, Townsville & Brisbane

NDS are holding ‘Purchasing Supports’ Workshop around Queensland on the following dates:

Cairns: May 22, Townsville: May 23, Brisbane: May 29

The workshops are specifically targeted at People with Disability and/or their families.

How to successfully negotiate getting the right supports for you:

A key emphasis of the NDIS is giving individuals greater choice and control on what services they receive. Individuals will be able to choose services to provide the supports identified in their plan and choose how the support will be provided.

Being skilled and confident in communication and negotiation is essential to getting the right support for you. This workshop will help you to:

  • understand your values, your preferred communication and negotiation style
  • prepare for and conduct a meeting
  • tackle tough conversations
