NDIS info forum


People with disability and their carers are invited to a series of information forums later this month to hear about their consumer rights under the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Hosted by Eurobodalla Council and presented by NSW Fair Trading, the sessions aim to build the skills and confidence of consumers and help them understand their rights when selecting disability-related goods or services through the NDIS.

Sessions will cover consumer rights, how people can be ‘smart shoppers’, what to look out for in contracts or agreements and what to do if something goes wrong – including the option of lodging a complaint with NSW Fair Trading.

The sessions are free and will be held in the Eurobodalla libraries.

The first sessions are on Monday 31 October at Batemans Bay Library from 1pm to 2pm, then repeated at 5pm to 6pm. On Tuesday 1 November, sessions will be held at Moruya Library at 10am to 11am, then 5pm to 6pm, and at Narooma Library from 1pm to 2pm.

To register, call Council’s community services on 4474 1300 or email contactcentre@esc.nsw.gov.au

Council’s Community Care is a registered NDIS provider and has been providing flexible community-based services to support people with disability and their carers for over 20 years.

COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available until an alternate system of author verification can be investigated and hopefully installed.

Those who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
