March this year marked 25 years of WorkAbility, including five with The Disability Trust supporting people with disabilities to participate fully in mainstream employment and community life. This milestone sees us with much to be proud of and much to look forward to as the NDIS rolls out across our region.
Welcoming the NDIS this year we have held Community Information Forums in Batemans Bay, Bega and Bombala providing Q&A with National Disability Insurance Agency staff, Local Area Coordinators (LACs), and family members who have NDIS experience in the ACT. We have enjoyed the challenge of finding new ways to provide flexible and accountable supports for participants and their families under the NDIS framework.
This includes innovative accommodation options such as our new Kangaroo Run Share House in Tura Beach. The tenants and their families maximise their choice and control by regular House Meetings and the Parent’s Governance Group.
