ACD is pleased to announce a new opportunity for families with a child with a disability.

Peer support for families navigating the NDIS

ACD CONNECT is a free peer support network for families seeking to manage their own supports and make the most of the NDIS to go beyond traditional disability pathways. ACD will run monthly peer meetings, providing opportunities for families to share their experiences and learn from the experiences of others. ACD Connect Facilitators will support groups to learn about:

  • National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
  • Preparing for planning
  • Implementing an NDIS plan
  • Choice and control
  • Advocating for your child
  • Community resources and much more!
