Get More Skills: A Good Life is a workshop run by My Choice Matters, an independent organisation working with people with disability to live life their way and get the most out of the changing disability system.

My Choice Matters will empower people living with disability in Western Sydney to get the most out of their lives and navigate the National Disability Insurance Scheme at this free workshop. Since the NDIS will completely shift the way disability support is provided across Australia, now people living with disabilities have an opportunity to receive individualised support and funding, which is a significant change from the current system.

However, in order to take full advantage of the NDIS, people with disability, their family members and carers will need to think in advance and prepare for their planning meetings. This not only requires new skills and knowledge, but also new thinking and confidence.

This is where My Choice Matters comes in. Our goal is to help people learn and practice new ways of doing things and develop and grow skills in three key areas: choice, voice and control – three very important qualities people should have in their own lives. Our workshop facilitators will discuss the NDIS, and how setting goals can help participants make the most of the new system. We provide practical hands-on activities and take home tools.

Our workshops are free and open to anyone with a disability or who is a family member or carer, and we are able to supply interpreters, personal care and other assistance to make them as accessible as possible. Facilitator: Gloria Boyle
