NDIS Advocacy

NDIS Advocacy

The NDIS Advocate will help people with a disability, their families and carers prepared for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

So make an appointment if you need help with the following:

  • Explain to families and carers the key aspects of the NDIS and its potential impact on their lives;
  • Providing participants with updates regarding the roll-out of the NDIS;
  • Familiarising participants, their families and carers with the planning process associated with accessing funds under the NDIS and assist with pre-planning.

Consultations are FREE  and conducted at Interchange -127 Mitchell Street, Bendigo. You don’t have to be a client of Interchange to access this service. Phone  5441-1599 or  email marie.whitrow@interchangelm.org.au to make an appointment.

This service is funded by Bendigo Health – Carers Support Services.

Positive Partnership Workshop – Echuca

Positive Partnerships provides professional learning for parents and carers like you. Our solution based tools and Parent Carer workshops will help you build your confidence and knowledge in supporting your child as they grow and develop.

All of our online and in-person programs are backed and funded by the Australian Government, and have been since 2008. This reflects the value the government places on this program.

When we work together, we can help create a path for children that provides them with the best possible learning opportunities. If you feel you’d like to know more, share experiences and learn from others living your experience, we’re here with authentic and practical support.

Positive Partnerships is the foundation of a positive support network between parents, teachers, carers and the children in your care.
