Navigating the NDIS

Accessing the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) may at first seem overwhelming, but CentacareCQ has a free and simple solution to help you navigate the process. We are a local social services organisation offering obligation-free preplanning sessions for anyone wanting to access support services through the NDIS, or seeking more information about the scheme.

Shari Jackson, CentacareCQ’s NDIS Services Manager, said preparation and planning was key to getting the right care for your individual needs through the NDIS. Our free sessions are all about your goals and aspirations – we work with you to find what supports you need to live the life you want,” Ms Jackson said.

“Preplanning puts your needs in focus and provides you with choice and control in the way your care is delivered now, and into the future. As an approved NDIS service provider, CentacareCQ understands how the Scheme is delivered and we can take the stress and uncertainty out of your application process.” Ms Jackson said with more than 40 years of community care experience in the region, CentacareCQ are able to offer an individualised approach, with advice and information to empower NDIS participants.

CentacareCQ’s broad range of services includes support coordination, plan management, community transport, self care assistance, counselling, psychology, group-based social activities, yard maintenance, home modifications, in-home care and community access. “Our experienced team can discuss all the options available so you can make an informed decision about your care, or the care of your loved ones,” Ms Jackson said.

To ensure a holistic approach, and to improve the support outcomes for the whole community, CentacareCQ also work with a range of other local disability service providers. “While our organisation delivers a number of key supports through the NDIS, we understand the needs of participants are diverse and we provide referrals to other agencies to provide greater choice for the individual.”
