What others have learned

This is a space where people living with SCI and like disability share their lived-experience views, tips, tricks and thoughts around navigating the NDIS. It is a place to discuss issues and concerns, and share successes and barriers. By sharing people’s lived-experience of the NDIS and what they have learnt, we hope to help others as they navigate their own NDIS journey.
