As part of a Department of Communities state-wide grant, Brightwater has developed a useful one-stop NDIS resource for individuals and their families, carers, guardians, health and other human services professionals, and disability service providers.

The NDIS Toolkit has been developed to support the sector in guiding individuals with complex support needs through NDIS eligibility and preplanning. The toolkit will help people register for the NDIS and prepare for planning meetings by taking out the guesswork. There is also information in the toolkit about roles and responsibilities, what can be funded and where people can find someone to help them with their applications.

A number of shires have placed a link to this tool on their resources page and feedback from those using the toolkit has been positive.

We wanted to take the opportunity to inform you about the resource, as it may be useful to place on your website in order to assist people within your district.
