Get NDIS streetwise: Sharing highly valuable strategies and tips from those at the coal-face
Thursday 3rd December 2015, 12-1.15 PM AEDT
A webinar presented by InCharge:
Are you frustrated by information sessions without a lot of practical details? 
Well, we want you feeling confident and ready to roll at the start of 2016!
We have invited 3 independent experts who have been working with people with disability and families in 3 different trial sites to share their wisdom, reflections and practical strategies to help you make the most from the NDIS. 
Speakers provide independent pre-planning, Co-ordination of Support and Plan Management with the NDIS. Being independent means they do not work for any particular service provider. Learn from those on-the-ground, working directly with people in South Australia, ACT and the Hunter, NSW.
Our aim is to connect you with innovators nationally and internationally, so this is an online seminar. 
Visit the InCharge website to see more on what you will learn, and for the registration link.
