NDIS Pre-Planning Workshop at Fighting Chance

On Friday 19th and Saturday 20th February, Fighting Chance will be hosting the next instalment in our NDIS information series, an NDIS Pre-Planning Workshop led by supports coordinator Pieta Manning.

The workshop will last 3 hours, and during that time Pieta will provide resources and guidance to help you to begin your pre-planning. The session will include:

  • An overview of current NDIS processes
  • An explanation of NDIS funded supports
  • An introduction to and practice using an NDIS pre-planning tool
  • Small group work with the support of trained planners to help you get started

The goal of the workshop is that participants leave with the confidence, templates and understanding of the pre-planning process to be able to develop a vision for their NDIS planning and effectively document this for their planning meeting.

Group sizes are limited to just 25, so please RSVP early to guarantee your place.

Where? Fighting Chance – Building B, 5 Skyline Place, Frenchs Forest

When? We will be holding 3 identical sessions of the workshop:

Friday 19 February, 5:30pm – 8:30pm

Saturday 20 February, 10am – 1pm

Saturday 20 February, 2pm – 5pm

When RSVP-ing, please state which session you would like to attend.

How long? 3 hours

How much? $25 per person, to cover Pieta’s time and the time of two coordinators who will be at the session to assist with group work. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to attend but will find the fee a barrier.

Who can attend? All welcome, please feel free to spread the word.

The workshop will be held by Pieta Manning*, a supports co-ordinator from the ACT.

Nibbles and soft drink will be provided.

We had over 100 people attend our previous NDIS workshops and fully expect to fill the 25 spaces in each of the three sessions very quickly, so please RSVP as early as you can to avoid disappointment.

Email to confirm your place, stating which session you would like to attend.

*About Pieta Manning

Pieta Manning established Your Plan Your Way in the ACT NDIS trial site to offer NDIS participants access to independent pre-planning and coordination services. The need for this became evident after working in support services and seeing the conflict of interest that can occur when service providers are able to influence the services people access. Your Plan Your Way works with each individual to help them explore their vision and goals.

    Thanks very much for holding these sessions.

    It is very important that people are properly prepared for their planning session and know something about what they want to get the most out of it.
