• Welcome to Pave the Way

    NDIS Participant Readiness and Future Planning - The Future Starts Now.

    Pave the Way is funded by the Department of Communities' (Disability Services) to deliver Participant Readiness activities. This aspect of Pave the Way's work will assist Queenslanders with disabilities, their families and carers in the North Coast, North Queensland and Far North Queensland regions to prepare for the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme in their area.  

    We will continue to assist families throughout Queensland to clarify their vision for their family member with a disability and to plan to implement that vision. We encourage planning which is vision driven, ‘whole of life’, developmental, outside service planning and which safeguards family members in the long-term.

Mamre presents: 'An Intimate Insight Into The NDIS'

Location: 
Kedron-Wavell Services Club "Kittyhawk Room"
Date: 
Saturday, 24 September, 2016 - 09:30 to 16:30

The NDIS commences in the Brisbane region from July 2018, less than 2 years away, and as we know time tends to fly!  Mamre is committed to supporting families and people with disability to be well prepared and informed and therefore NDIS ready.  This forum offers families and people with disability the opportunity of hearing from a parent (Sally Coddington) from NSW whose daughter is a participant and who is in receipt of NDIS funding.  This forum will also cover how the law can assist in safeguarding your NDIS plan.  We strongly encourage families and people with disability to attend this event.

A Fundamental Shift

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a significant social and economic reform and one that should make a hugely positive difference to people with disability and their families. It also represents a huge structural change for the whole disability sector. It is interesting times!

An important aspect of the NDIS is that it is seeking to redress the disadvantage that many Australians living with disability experience and ensure that they will have the necessary support to participate more fully in social and economic life.

The Productivity Commission’s report on Disability Care and Support in Australia concluded that the current disability system is unfair, fragmented, underfunded and inefficient. It has been a lottery of who has received funding and who hasn’t. People have had very little flexibility, choice and control over the support they received.
