Deaf Australia are coming to Brisbane for NDIS Review sessions 


Hello, my name is Julie Lyons (sign name), and I'm a Deaf Australia Board member. I'm creating this vlog to discuss upcoming events that you may have already seen Deaf Australia promoting. We'll be in Brisbane this Friday, August 11th, from 5pm to 8pm. This will be a valuable opportunity to engage in conversations about Deaf Australia's accomplishments, future plans, and the constitution consultation. It's truly worth your while to attend and participate in these important discussions. Everyone is welcome to join.

On the following day, Saturday, August 12th, there will be an NDIS review meeting from 9:30am to 1pm. So you can share your feedback and opinions on the effectiveness of the NDIS system. Your input matters to help improve NDIS. You will get paid for your time.

Also on the same Saturday, at 2pm to 5pm, we will be holding an NDIS youth review. This is important for individuals under 25 years old, and parents of young individuals are also encouraged to attend. You will get paid for your time too.

RSVP is mandatory ASAP so that Deaf Australia can prepare for the events. This includes catering arrangements. The events will take place at the Deaf Connect Community Centre. Please feel free to reach out to Deaf Australia's CEO, Jen, myself, or DCCQ.

We look forward to seeing you there. Goodbye.


Hello, I'm River, and I will be hosting the Youth NDIS review. This review is for young Deaf individuals aged between 13 to 25 years old. Parents are welcome to accompany those who are between 13 to 18 years old if they want some support.

The NDIS review is scheduled for this Saturday, August 12th, from 1pm to 4pm. [DA Note: the workshop will be from 2pm to 5pm not 1pm to 4pm.] Please refer to the provided text for the location address. This event is an opportunity for youthsto share their feedback and opinions on what is and isn't working within the NDIS system.

The discussions during the workshop will be kept completely confidential. The NDIS will not have access to participants' names, except for those present including DA staff and myself during the event. There will be two interpreters to voice the discussions, and the session will be recorded.

Hope to see you there and not to miss out on this exciting opportunity.
