Note: A Q&A session that followed this presentation is available to watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D85XfwrpZxk The NDIS is a new way of funding individualised support for people with disability that involves more choice and control. The NDIS aims to meet a participant’s reasonable and necessary needs over the course of their lifetime. The ACT will be one of the NDIS trial sites from July 2014 and people will gradually phased into the scheme over 2 years. Human service support workers are the face of the service system for the people with disability, their families and other unpaid carers. As the ACT moves into the NDIS, direct support workers have a unique role and responsibility as a first point of information and guidance to the people they serve. Direct workers have the potential to set the scene for many people as they approach the changes, challenges and opportunities that the NDIS will bring. Information sessions about the NDIS were held on 27 March 2014 and 1 April 2014 by the ACT disability sector Professional Learning and Development Network. The sessions were presented by Judith Davis Lee of the ACT National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) and facilitated by Sarah King ACT NDIS Taskforce and provided information about the ACT launch of the NDIS trial.

My name’s Anita and I’m a planner. I’m Rick and I’m also a planner here at the NDIA. It’s more than just a job. It’s something that you have a real passion about coming to work and doing. From my time in the Army, I worked a lot with soldiers who had been injured overseas and had a lot to do with their rehabilitation. And then on top of that I also have a son, who’s now in his teens and he’s on the Autism spectrum. So for me it was quite personal as well. Being somebody who has lived experience of an invisible disability, being able to maintain full-time permanent employment has been really important to me and I’m so proud of being able to come to work every day. Personally one of the greatest things I’ve seen is developing a plan with a person who required a prosthetic limb and through getting that limb, they’ve actually been able to return to full-time work. For me it’s just like, that’s what this job is all about…. NDIS Staff Profile – Anita & Rick published: 02 Feb 2017 views: 309

Hi, Zoe here from the NDIA. Today, we’re in the city of churches, Adelaide, with our very active youth advisory group. We’ve heard that some people don’t know what NDIS stands for. So we’re going to hit Rundle Mall and find out what people think it is. What does NDIS stand for? I don’t really know to be honest. I have no idea what the NDIS means. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of it in my entire life. National…. Something… Something… Society? National Dog in Services? National… Disability… IS? It’s the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Insurance Scheme. It makes so much more sense than National Disability IS. The NDIS stand for equality among all people, whether they have a disability or not. NDIS means that I can have a mentor to help me with the parts of life that I find challenging. NDIS means to get any support you can to learn how to be independent. It means that I work, in the city. I can get the support to play footy, my favourite sport, and get the equipment I need to protect my hearing aids. My family can pay for the physio. It helps me with stuff I need help with and it’s really hard for me to talk to people. You can also get someone to teach you social abilities so you are able to make more friends. How to make friends and go up to people and start having a conversation with them. It means that if I ever have kids who have a disability, they get the support that I have.
