NDIS Participant Booklets: Understanding the NDIS; Planning; and Using your NDIS Plan

New NDIS participation Booklets now available to download

NDIA has released three new participant booklets available on the NDIS website

A key recommendation of the recent Pathway Review was to provide clear and more detailed information to assist people to understand and navigate the NDIS.

The booklets provide practical information for participants, potential participants, their families, carers and the wider community to use throughout their NDIS journey.  As a key resource in navigating the NDIS, the booklets are intended for use throughout a participant’s journey and can be used to record key information write questions and collect thoughts.

The booklets will be reviewed every six months to ensure they meet the needs of participants. If you have feedback that we can forward to the NDIA please email mary.butterworth@ddwa.org.au.

Printed copies will also be available from September from our NDIA and Partner in the Community Offices or by contacting the NDIA Contact Centre on 1800 800 110.
