At Fighting Chance we are committed to building a truly inclusive future where people with disability experience limitless social and economic inclusion. As well as creating work and community participation opportunities through our social businesses – Avenue, Jigsaw and Base, we want to empower you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to advocate for yourself and get the most out of the NDIS.

We have launched an NDIS educational series where we will be sharing information and resources. Below are our upcoming live webinars with Fighting Chance’s award-winning NDIS Support Manager, Lisa Duffy.
