Raelyn’s life is looking rosy with the NDIS – Carers Queensland

October 20, 2020

Raelyn Watson’s love of flowers has seen her utilise her National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports to follow her dream of one day starting her own florist business.

The Annerley local used a support coordinator, as part of her NDIS plan, to help her apply for a Lions Club sponsorship for her TAFE enrolment.

Raelyn, who is deaf, said she is grateful for being able to pursue her love of flowers alongside her NDIS goals.

“Having this support has made a huge difference in my life,” Raelyn said.

“I have learnt so much about flowers, the names, etc and I have gained so many skills. Thank you NDIS!”

Raelyn said she chose flower arranging because it is in her family.

“My great Aunty Thelma and Peg have their own flowers on their farm, that’s why I want to have a floristry design career for my future job or small business.”

Raelyn will soon work with another person who is deaf and specialises in information technology.

These one-on-one sessions with allow Raelyn to learn how to use computers and emails.

“I want to gain my technology skills and next I want to do literacy to improve my English too when I finish my TAFE course in December.”

Raelyn received assistance to apply for and implement her NDIS funding from Carers Queensland’s NDIS Local Area Coordination Partner in the Community Program for the Brisbane region.
