April 2017 Newsletter

NDIS Corner

The NDIS rollout for Adults commences from 1 July 2017. The first regions to be targeted are the Northern Suburbs of Adelaide (City of Playford, Salisbury  and the eastern section of Port Adelaide and Enfield Council) and the local government districts of Barossa, Light and Lower North.

People already receiving services through Disability SA will be amongst the first to be contacted by an NDIA Planner to initiate your planning conversation. To assist you in your preparations, PQSA has developed a “Getting NDIS Plan Ready” workbook. This will provide you with essential information on the NDIS, and the main areas in your life you are likely to be asked questions about. The workbook also has a ‘Planning Tool’ that provides a short summary on PQSA and HomeCare+ services, along with helpful tips to assist you to think about and plan for your future under the NDIS.

PQSA will be holding a series of information sessions for existing PQSA and HomeCare+ clients and their families living in the northern regions on the “Getting NDIS Plan Ready” workbook. Please see the flyer for session details.
