I am in a country town!
I want to let you all know that soon I will be in Tasmania for the NDIS Review. I will also consult with the community about Deaf Australia’s constitution, but the NDIS Review is really important.
If you come, you will be able to talk about your experiences with the NDIS, both positive and negative. I will take on all of your information and then give it to the NDIS, so they can learn and understand how to adapt to work with you, the Deaf community. We will ask questions like, do you have a good or bad experience with the NDIS; whether the NDIS understands you as a Deaf person; what good things you want more of; what things you want less of; whether you are happy with your plan, especially in comparison to others who have a NDIS plan – would you want everyone to have similar plans or different.
We will ask many different questions.
We will be going to all the states in Australia this year.
You will also have an opportunity to meet us at Deaf Australia before or after the events.
You will be paid for coming to the NDIS Review. Those who are Deaf, Deafblind or hard of hearing – all those who have plans will be paid $140 for two hours, and $50 per hour afterwards. Those who are not Deaf, Deafblind or hard of hearing, and support Deaf people, will be paid, but at a lesser rate per hour.
So, please do RSVP! I’ll be in Tasmania this weekend! I do know it is short notice, and I do apologise for that – in two weeks time, I will be in Adelaide, South Australia, this will be the same opportunity again.
In Tasmania there will be two events, one for the community and one for young people under 25 years old, which will be facilitated by the amazing Ace! A Tasmanian young person who will facilitate this workshop for young people! Please come, RSVP, the link is below. Thank you!
