Accessing the NDIS? Co-Design Focus Group with LGBTIQA+ people
Posted on: 7th April 2019
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:
- What is a psychosocial disability and what does that mean for you?
- How can reimagine.today support you to access the NDIS?
- What barriers do LGBTIQA+ people living with mental health conditions face in accessing the NDIS?
- How can resources be improved to better support LGBTIQA+ communites to access the NDIS?
How Can I get Involved?
We invite LGBTIQA+ people 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 and lunch and afternoon tea will be provided. We are looking to engage 8-12 people per group. Appropriate reimbursement will be provided to eligible consumer/carer participants.
