Endeavour Foundation is committed to assisting our customers to confidently transition to NDIS. We have been talking with people with a disability, their families and carers across the country to better understand the types of information and support you need.
We have partnered with leading Australian universities and undertaken research to determine how best to capture individual needs in line with the NDIS assessment process, so we are well prepared to support you.
As a result, we've developed the following tools that you'll find useful:
1. Pre-planning booklet – Mapping My World
Many customers tell us that preparing for planning meetings with the NDIS can be a daunting prospect with uncertainty about what needs to be included and how to start.
We have created a pre-planning booklet, Mapping My World, to make it easy for you to think about the supports you want and need – now and in the future – before meeting with your NDIA planner.
Click on the image above to access an editable document for you to complete online. If you'd prefer to print off a copy to complete by hand, please click here.
If you need help completing the booklet, or have questions, please contact your local Endeavour Foundation office, call us on 1800 112 112 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Discover Guide
We have a new release of the Discover guide, available hot off the press! This practical, comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the NDIS, prepared by La Trobe University in conjunction with Endeavour Foundation, is funded by the National Disability Insurance Agency and aims to help people understand the various components of the NDIS and how to access them. It also includes additional legal information on whole-of-life planning for people with a disability.
Please download a copy by clicking on the image above. If you would like us to mail you a copy of Discover Guide on USB, please send your name and full address to email@example.com or call 07 3896 6033.
Due to overwhelming demand we are currently unable to provide hard copies of the Discover Guide. Please check back in early 2017, as this may change.
