Changing Lives Changing Communities - NDIS Townsville

 Registration is closed for this event
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has come to life in Townsville and is already making a difference in people’s lives and our community.

In 2016 more than 80 interested people came together in Townsville to start the conversation to share what we know about the NDIS, generate ideas for action around three main streams- jobs, a place to call home, and reimagining the future. This was a first step in starting the work together -  to co-design projects that make a difference and see the community working together to bring the NDIS to life.

Since this first event, the NDIS has started, and is playing a part in enabling people to live the life they want, bringing about changes in people’s lives and the community. We know there are many more opportunities and we need to work together in the Townsville community.  

This event is the next part of the conversation – how is the NDIS changing lives and the community here in Townsville, what has happened so far and what have we learned, what else is needed and what else is possible?

You are invited to join us for this important community conversation to share what we know about how the NDIS is changing lives and community, what opportunities there are to build upon this, and what is needed in this next phase to turn fresh ideas into action.

People with disability, families, friends, employers and interested community members who are interested in continuing this work together to build a fully inclusive city are invited to attend.

We need you!

Community members in Townsville along with Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN), our local support group, Townsville City Council and QCOSS invite you to join this conversation that matters. 

We know the NDIS brings opportunities to help change lives and build an inclusive community. We know that things are changing for people with disability, their families/carers and the community. This event builds upon our first conversation in June 2016, to share some of the positive things that are already happening, see what other opportunities there are and be part of some fresh ideas that we can build upon and turn into action.

The event is free, accessible and open to anyone who can help build a fully inclusive city

If you’re a person with disability or family member, if you run a business, work in education, can employ people or are interested in making sure Townsville is inclusive, we need you!

The focus of day one will be on sharing what has happened since we last met (June 2016) and. 

The second day will be about building upon what is working, generating fresh ideas and turning them into action. 

You are most welcome to join us event if you didn’t make it last year!
