We have employed Peer Leaders in NSW/ACT, NT, QLD, SA, VIC and TAS to coordinate state-based Peer-led Networks and be part of a co-design process to develop additional resources for, that will further support people in accessing the NDIS. In particular, new resources and updates will improve guidance around self-advocacy, decision making and self-management of NDIS access and planning.


This FREE workshop, run over 2 half day sessions, is an opportunity to:

  • Learn about and how you can use it to support your NDIS access

  • Learn about self-management and decision-making for accessing the NDIS and looking after your plan.
