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.
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.
