Free online learning tool to help NDIS participants manage funding

PEOPLE using the National Disability Insurance Scheme can learn how to better manage their funding with a free online learning tool rolled-out by Carers Queensland.

HELP AT HAND: An introductory session where NDIS participants can learn how to use the online portal will be held on June 29 and 30.

Chief executive Debra Cottrell said the company had been providing in-person support online during the pandemic and would be keeping it in place going forward.

The online program offers interactive sessions for small groups across a variety of topics, such as self-management of NDIS plans.

NDIS spokeswoman Natalie Polkinghorne said people with an existing plan who were self-managing their funds could take part in an introductory session.

She said it would teach people how to use the online portal and explain clearly what was required on a day-to-day basis.

The first introductory sessions, to be held on June 29 and 30, could be booked online or by contacting a local area coordinator.

“We will also be offering an advanced session for people who are experienced with self-managing their NDIS plan,” Ms Polkinghorne said.

“This session is about the flexibility, creativity and innovation that self-management offers people on the NDIS to get the most out of their plan.”

Those with a disability can enquire about the scheme by calling 3565 8600 or contacting Carers Queensland on 1300 999 636.

They Call me Shuffles

    A diagnosis with Parkinson's changes a lot of things: Motor function, non-motor functions, but maybe even more powerful is the changes in social interactions. I personally don't mind being called "Shuffles" now, I did at first (8 or so years ago I think), I...
