Guiding Group

Date:    Thursday June 9th 2016

Time:    5.00pm for dinner and catch-up

6.00pm to 8.00pm for our main meeting

Venue: 69 Thomas Street, West End, Brisbane

Agenda: Acknowledging our stories and imagining the potential within us

The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) will begin in Brisbane in 2 years’ time. It will change the way people with disabilities engage with services. We will offer a space for people to begin to explore possibilities they would like to foster in their lives (or the lives of those they support) in order to imagine their potential and get the best outcomes from the NDIS.

We would value your input and insight at this Guiding Group. Please join us if you are able to. Bring food to share for dinner if you can!
