Yooralla to hold NDIS pre-planning sessions in Moreland and Hume

DATE: 11 December 2017

Yooralla will be opening its doors next month to support locals living with disability and their carers in preparation for the National Disability Insurance Scheme roll out in Moreland and Hume in March.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new funding model designed to give people with disability more choice and control over how their support needs are met.

Yooralla, one of Victoria’s largest not-for-profit disability services providers that will celebrate its 100th anniversary next year, will hold free one-on-one NDIS pre-planning sessions at its Glenroy office at 50 Wheatsheaf Road.

The 45-minute sessions will run in two blocks: from Monday 4 December through to Wednesday 6 December and from Wednesday 13 December through to Friday 15 December 2017.

Dr Sherene Devanesen, Yooralla Chief Executive Officer, says it has become apparent that people with disability and their carers wish to understand the NDIS before their NDIS planning meeting.

“Yooralla was one of the pivotal organisations who lobbied for the NDIS and is now keen to support people through this transition. Whether you are a parent of a child with disability, an adult with disability or a carer of an adult with disability, Yooralla has NDIS information tailored to suit you.

“Yooralla chose to offer these sessions one-on-one, rather than a large group forum, to give people the opportunity to discuss their personal circumstances in private and have their NDIS questions answered,” says Dr Devanesen.

Registration is available either through www.yooralla.com.au/pre-planning or by calling 03 9666 4500.

Those unable to attend on the scheduled dates, can contact Yooralla’s Community Engagement team to organise another time, on 03 9666 4500 or ndis.infohub@yooralla.com.au.
