Conor’s story: Making the most of the NDIS with Yooralla
Yooralla has recently developed a short video highlighting the value that Yooralla and the National Disability Insurance Scheme has had on one person’s life.
The video, titled Conor’s story: Making the most of the NDIS with Yooralla shows the positive impact that Yooralla’s Learning Hub has had on Conor’s life.
Conor has been a customer at Yooralla’s Learning Hub for seven years. During that time he says he has learnt many things that his parent Kerrie says you wouldn’t just put down to classes.
“There are all these other things that has allowed Conor to develop as a young man, like travel and getting around the city. The Learning Hub for me has been a really positive experience. They are really highly trained people here,” said Kerrie.
Conor lives in one of the first areas of Victoria where people transitioned to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The NDIS has been a positive experience for him and Kerrie. Kerrie said they believe that there is real heart inside the NDIS.
“We are sharing a goal, and as a solo parent that sort of support is invaluable,” said Kerrie.
The advice that Kerrie would give to anyone about to start their NDIS journey is not to be afraid to ask questions.
”Try to, as best you can, to understand this terminology and ask the meaning of any words you are unsure of, because when they are explained to you it’s a real eye opener how much they (ie. the NDIS) have managed to understand the experience of the carer,” said Kerrie.
Yooralla’s Learning Hub is situated in Flinders Street in Melbourne, and is one of Yooralla’s 16 Community Hubs around suburban Melbourne and Victoria. Click here to read more about Yooralla’s Community Hubs.
