Now it is clear when the National Disability Insurance Scheme is rolling out in your area, are you wondering what impact the NDIS will have on your life and the life of your son/daughter?

Taking full advantage of this new way of securing quality supports, will also mean learning the best ways to engage with the NDIS, service providers and others.

Down Syndrome Victoria is funded by the Agency managing the NDIS, to support locally based groups to focus on skill building, so that people feel confident to identify and articulate their goals, implement NDIS plans, negotiate with individual service providers and access other community opportunities.
