October is upon us and the NDIS have officially launched in the Western Region.
Latrobe Community Health have been appointed the Local Area Coordinators for the region and will be responsible for most of the NDIS planning meetings that will be held with participants and families. It is great to see that an NDIS office has been set up at 194 Manifold Street Camperdown with 2 Latrobe Community Health staff based there. A number of Cooinda participants have had their planning meetings and others will roll out over the coming months. Cooinda staff have been asked to support participants and families in some of the meetings and this have given us a great insight to the process and what sort of information they require. The work we have been doing in pre-planning with families has been invaluable and we hope to get all of the pre planning done in time for the meetings coming up.
If you have not yet had a pre-plan done please get in touch with Cooinda staff to help you out.
