Upcoming eventsNDIS and CALD communities: Aiming high for equitable access
What steps will ensure people from CALD backgrounds with disability are best supported by the NDIS?
Griffith University is proud to partner with AMPARO Advocacy Inc on its ninth NDIS Symposium. It's a series that brings together people with disability, their families, researchers and professionals to ask some challenging questions about the implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). AMPARO Advocacy defends, protects and promotes the rights and interests of vulnerable people from a non-English speaking background who have a disability.
Tuesday 11 October - Symposium #9 will explore:
- What can we all do to ensure that culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities have equitable access to the NDIS?
- How do we create culturally safe and responsive systems?
- What are the experiences of individuals with disability and families from CALD backgrounds?
- What can we learn from the Victorian NDIS trial site in Barwon on working with refugee communities?
