Currajong Carers Support Group (CCSG) recently held its monthly meeting and coffee chat recently (May 16) to discuss the changes on the horizon regarding the NDIS and how it will affect the industry and the group. The CCSG were also extremely impressed by the hand-made quilts donated to Parkes Hospital and wanted to congratulate the clients on their efforts.
The past week also saw “Together” Chats with Matt – a great initiative where people could call in and chat with Matt and other facilitators from the Together program. It was and continues to be a great opportunity to hear how other groups run and pick up tips and hints on how to better do things.
Next meeting will be on June 20 and CCSG welcomes any new or interested parties who want to join or come along and check it out.
Carers Australia NSW is also running NDIS workshops throughout the region over the next few months to get the best outcome from the NDIS for the person they care for and themselves.
The two-part workshop focuses on building knowledge and skills to help carers to make informed choices when accessing the NDIS. The aim is to raise awareness and functionality for carers as well as accessibility.
Day 1 will consist of an introduction to the NDIS while Day 2 will focus on the role as a carer in the NDIS.
TIME Workshops run from 10.00am 1.30pm. Attendance both days is required.
