The Participant and Provider forums held when David Bowen visited the Canberra trial site in late January, provided valuable information. The NDIA is promoting a comprehensive program of engagement activities and invite you to follow them on Facebook.
from David Bowen, CEO
National Disability Insurance Agency
Thank you for coming to the Participant and/or Provider Forum I hosted during my recent visits to our trial sites. Hearing your stories first hand is incredibly valuable, both for me personally and for the Agency as we work towards rolling out the National Disability
It was great to have people with disability, their families and carers, and providers attend the forums and provide feedback on their exper iences with the Scheme. Over 2,000 people attended and watched the forums. This confirmed the strong community interest in the Scheme as it rolls-out across Australia.
To be successful the NDIS has to be built with people with disability at the heart of everything we do. Your contribution during my visit helps to inform us how the Scheme is progressing and helps us learn as we continue to build the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
The Agency runs a comprehensive program of engagement activities. To keep updated subscribe to our newsletter (http://www.ndis.gov.au/sign-updates), follow us on Facebook and have a look at our events page on our website (http://www.ndis.gov.au/news/events)
Thank you again.
