Accessing the NDIS? Co-Design Focus Group with CALD communities

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 CALD communities and will include a series of 3 face to face focus groups, as well as other opportunities for participation.

Some things we will talk about:

  • What is a psychosocial disability and what does that mean for you?
  • How can support you to access the NDIS?
  • What barriers do people from CALD backgrounds with mental health conditions face in accessing the NDIS?
  • How can resources be improved to better support people from CALD backgrounds to access the NDIS?
How Can I get Involved?

We invite people from CALD backgrounds living with a mental health condition, their family, carers, supporters, advocates and service providers – to take part. Participants are welcomed to attend alone or with a supporter. Each session will run for four hours, lunch and refreshments will be provided. We want to engage 8-12 people per group. Appropriate reimbursement will be provided to eligible consumer/carer participants.

We invite you to attend the first co-design group:
