Open Arms Care in Bellingen, in conjunction with Nambucca Valley Phoenix, and LiveBetter Community Services, are running a workshop about the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Bellingen at The Hub, 2 William St, on Tuesday August 15 from 10 am to 12 pm.

The three organisations are joining forces to assist people with a disability, their families and carers to get the most out of the NDIS and to ensure services remain local, are delivered by local staff, and are of benefit to local people.

Topics covered will include the partnership, maximising NDIS participant outcomes, quality service delivery, and ensuring customers and their families identify core supports and capacities. 

Nambucca Valley Phoenix General Manager, Melissa Fitzgerald said that we now live in an age of empowerment defined by customer choice – and that’s a great thing.

“Everyone’s needs are unique. It’s why we place our customers’ individual needs at the centre of our work, designing programs and plans specifically for them,” she said.

“We are in the second phase of the NDIS – we’ve gone through the planning and we’re now making it happen. It’s time to make sure our customers get the most out of their plans.”
