SydWest Multicultural Services, in partnership with Settlement Services Intl, invites local people with disability form culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, local CALD organisers, leaders, as well as NDIA, LACs and mainstream providers to share their experiences of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and identify issues and solutions to improve access to the NDIS by CALD people with disabilities.
The aim of this get-together is to:
• Help increase access to the NDIS by people from CALD backgrounds
• Increase the knowledge of LACS, NDIA and mainstream disability providers of the issues impacting on people with a disability from CALD backgrounds who are eligible for the NDIS
• Inform CALD communities and people with disability of the existence of local NDIA, LACs and mainstream disability providers and how to access them
• Develop local recommendations to be presented to the NDIA to help improve the NDIS experience by people with disabilities from CALD backgrounds
