NDIS Success Stories

Danielle Bright, Support Planner at Casino Neighbourhood Centre tells these two NDIS success stories …

1.  We have a participant that lives in a remote area, 110 km from Casino where she receives support. The person attends Respite in Casino where she is able to socialise with her peers and participate in community activities at the Day Service. This person has been previously limited to Services due to her funding package, location and personal support needs.  Recently this family was contacted by the NDIS Local Area Coordinator and, after working intensely with this family and NDIS Local Area Coordinator, the Plan was submitted to the NDIA. The family’s support has increased to meet her support needs and the participant has been able to increase and improve her health and wellbeing, community participation and social interaction. The NDIS has changed her life and provided her with more opportunities.

2.  I have recently been contacted by the NDIS Local Area Coordinator from the New England area. Two families have their NDIS Plans but were unable to engage a provider, so the plans hadn’t been started! We were pleased to be able to offer Casino Neighbourhood Centre as a provider and are currently working with these families to ensure that we provide the supports that these young people need.
