• 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.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander NDIS First Peoples Yarning Circle

In a partnership with the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships (DATSIP) the Brisbane region hosted the second Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) First Peoples Yarning Circle on 23 November at Kedron.

The Yarning Circle is a culturally safe and appropriate model to provide information for potential NDIS participants and Indigenous organisations that are aspirational NDIS service providers. Information was delivered by Mamre Association and Synapse, both of these organisations have been funded by the department to deliver participant readiness sessions.

Ms Tanya Malthouse, Regional Director DATSIP hosted the afternoon session which focussed on the business opportunities and the support that is available to organisations that are considering registering as NDIS service providers.

Planning is underway for 2017 Yarning Circle sessions. Further information is available from the BRNDISIn-fo@communities.qld.gov.au mailbox.
