NDIS Self Advocacy Working Group meets with NDIA Representatives

 

 

 

 

 

 

Self advocacy groups can help service providers to:

 

  • Advise on the quality of services and make them better
     
  • Inform service evaluation and reporting
     
  • Empower people to express their individual needs and support self-determination
     
  • Enable participatory decision making and choice within a service
     
  • Build skills to deliver person-centred planning.

 

Training and capacity building is available through the Voice at the Table project!

 

And to support the aims of the National Disability Insurance Scheme's (NDIS) Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) to ensure that:

 

  • People with disability are connected and have the information they need to make decisions and choices.
     
  • People with disability have the skills and confidence to participate and contribute to the community and protect their rights.
     
  • People with disability use and benefit from the same mainstream services as everyone else.
     
  • People with disability participate in and benefit from the same community activities as everyone else.
     
  • People with disability actively contribute to leading, shaping and influencing their community.
     

And to support the National Standards for Disability:

 

  • Rights
     
  • Participation and Inclusion
     
  • Individual Outcomes
     
  • Feedback and Complaints
