NDIS Get Ready:

helping Queensland Community Care service providers to prepare for the NDIS

From 1 July 2017 the YFS Get Ready team will work with Queensland Community Care service providers in Brisbane, Logan, Redlands and the Gold Coast. We will help these organisations support their eligible clients to transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Many Community Care clients will benefit from the NDIS. Community Care providers are in a great position to help their clients understand their eligibility and how to access the NDIS.

If you work in a Queensland Community Care service provider  and would like more information, please contact us on:

Email: getready@yfs.org.au

Phone: 1800 772 383 or 3826 1500

 

Information for people with a disability and their supporters about the NDIS

From 1 July 2017, the Queensland Government has funded a number of other organisations to undertake this work through the participant readiness initiative. The YFS Get Ready team will no longer offer forums and home visits for potential NDIS participants, to allow us to focus on working with the Queensland Community Care providers to help them get their clients ready for the NDIS.

Here are some ways you can find out more about the NDIS:

  • Visit the NDIS website
  • Visit the Queensland Government’s NDIS events calendar to find an event near you
