People with disability and job seekers encouraged to attend NDIS Ceduna expo

Wednesday – 8 November 2017

Eyre and Western

The State Government’s National Disability Insurance Scheme community information expo visits Ceduna today.

People with disability, their families and carers, along with job seekers in the Ceduna region will have the opportunity to learn more about the NDIS at the expo being held at the Ceduna Memorial Hall at 11am.

The expo will give the Ceduna community an opportunity to speak directly with a range of disability service providers and registered training organisations about how the NDIS works, as well as job opportunities in the sector.

Background

The NDIS will start rolling out for people aged 18 to 64 living in the Eyre and Western regions of South Australia from January 1, 2018.

The Ceduna expo is part of a series of state-wide expos organised by the State Government as part of its commitment to ensuring South Australians are aware of the NDIS, its benefits for people with disability, and the significant job opportunities being generated across the state as the scheme is rolled out.

So far, more than 2300 people have had the opportunity to personally connect with the industry at expos conducted in locations including Kangaroo Island, Port Augusta, Kadina, the Riverland, and metropolitan Adelaide.

Today’s expo in Ceduna will be the first of three planned for the state’s Western region. More information can be found at: www.mysupportmychoice.sa.gov.au
