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.
