Organised by the Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN) the workshops are being held throughout 2015 in major regional and city centres. Each interactive workshop runs for two weeks and is facilitated by people with disability. Parents, carers and supporters are invited to attend too.
While trial sites in Queensland have still to be announced this ‘ready to go’ project is intended to give participants the chance to be prepared for the NDIS. The workshops use interactive activities such as games, drawings and other fun approaches to present information about the NDIS in an uncomplicated and easy to understand format.
“We have had a great response from participants, their families and support workers who come along with them,” QDN CEO, Paige Armstrong, told F2L.”They enjoy learning important things in a fun way and having their voices heard.”
In recognition of participation, all those attending receive a certificate and the chance to join a master class later. The next round of workshops will be held at Bokarina on the Sunshine Coast on April 8 and 15, from 10.30am -2pm. Attendance is free and lunch is provided.
