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.

Content can range from personal blogs, to informative articles, short tips and tricks and useful resources. We invite you to contribute your own experiences as well; the good, the bad and everything in between. Feel free to comment on articles or contact us to provide your own.
