NDIS Toolkit

Brightwater has developed the NDIS toolkit to help guide individuals with disability and their support network to effectively plan for the NDIS.

The toolkit is for individuals and their families; carers and guardians; as well as health and other human services professionals, and disability service providers.
Funded by the Department of Communities Disability Services, the toolkit will help you register for the NDIS and prepare for your planning meeting by taking out all the guesswork.

The toolkit will be live on Friday 26 July 2019. Link: www.ndistoolkit.com.au
