NDIS Planning Meetings

With the continuation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) rollout, Minda has been working hard behind the scenes to ensure the people we support are best prepared for the transition.

Minda’s NDIS Transition Team has been meeting with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), to develop Supported Independent Living quotes (SILs) for people living in Minda Accommodation.

Minda’s preparation of information, and coordination of the planning meetings, support of customers, families and stakeholders is aimed at ensuring the outcome of a comprehensive and suitably funded NDIS plan.

We are also pleased to introduce a team of Customer Relationship Officers to Minda, who connect Minda customers, their families and carers to services across the organisation.

“Forming part of Disability Choices, Customer Relationship Officers provide the people we support and their families with a consistent point of contact and will ensure National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plans are effectively and efficiently implemented,” Senior Manager Disability Choices, Gai Dawe says.

Minda has also developed a series of workbooks to help people get the most out of their NDIS experience.

“After the great success of Minda’s NDIS Pre-Planning Guide we wanted to offer specific workbooks for key services; the MyHome NDIS Planning guide is to help people considering supported disability accommodation, and encourages them to think about goals for future living arrangements,” Gai says.

“In addition, the MyEmployment guide has been created to help people preparing to leave school, or seeing employment; it asks them to think about their goals for their career and helps in developing a better understanding of the process of transitioning to employment under the NDIS.”

The workbooks have been developed to use in conjunction with NDIS Planning Guides.

“The guides are really helpful in navigating the NDIS, but there are so many different ways you can get in touch with Minda’s Disability Choices, including online via our MyChoices web-based planning tool and by phone,” Gai says.

“All of these services are free and we’re here to help you get the best from the NDIS.”
