HELP FOR YOU

NDIS support

The rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) continues across WA.

While this is an exciting time for our community and their families leading to great opportunities, entering or changing to a new system can also be frustrating and challenging.

We provide a range of support services for people currently looking to enter the scheme or for those already working in it. This support includes:

  • NDIS Information and education – we can provide information, resources and/or education on a range of topics to assist your NDIS journey from testing your eligibility through pre-planning, planning and the review stage.

  • Advocacy – we can provide individual advocacy, particularly when the NDIS becomes challenging. Advocacy can be through attending meetings with you, providing support during planning negotiations or assisting with the appeals process. Read more on our advocacy services here.

  • Practical Planning Guide for the NDIS resource – this booklet, developed with Save Our Sons Duchenne Foundation has been designed to assist with understanding the NDIS and preparing for a planning or review meeting. Read more about the guide below.

Further information about the NDIS can be found at www.ndis.gov.au.

RESOURCE: PRACTICAL PLANNING GUIDE FOR THE NDIS

MDWA and Save our Sons Duchenne Foundation have put together a booklet designed for WA families and individuals who are either currently within the National Disability Insurance Scheme or transitioning over to the NDIS.

It is designed to assist with understanding the NDIS and preparing for a planning or review meeting.

You can use the booklet by either:

a)    Filling the information in electronically in the PDF and printing it; or
b)    Printing the booklet and hand writing the answers in.

The booklet can then be taken to the planning and review meetings to support your plan.

Other important things to do when planning include:

  • Speaking to family and friends, considered your informal supports.

  • Talking to service providers, community/education organisations and medical professionals who are involved in your life, known as your formal supports.

For further information on this booklet, the NDIS or to request a hardcopy please contact us.

PLEASE NOTE: The WA NDIS and NDIS transition is an ongoing project so we will try our best to keep this information as up to date as possible. If in doubt, please call or email us to clarify any questions you may have. This booklet should only be part of your preparation for a planning or review meeting.
