Accessing the NDIS? Co-Design Focus Group with LGBTIQA+ people

We are conducting a co-design process alongside people with lived experience, their family, carers, supporters, advocates and service providers to improve existing materials and create NEW supporting resources. Co-design provides an opportunity for people to contribute in a respectful, safe and supported environment. Our process includes a focus on LGBTIQA+ communities and will include a series of 3 face to face & 3 online focus groups, as well as other opportunities for participation.

Some things we will talk about:

How Can I get Involved?
