Advocacy

 PATH supports people with a disability to achieve your goals, your choices.

PATH supports you to:

  • express your views and concerns
  • access information and services
  • defend and promote your rights

 PATH supports people:

  • with any disability
  • of any age
  • with any issue of concern to you
  • living in the Nepean, Blue Mountains or Hawkesbury areas

PATH also supports carers. We recognise the special role and needs of those who care for others.

 


 

Help with the NDIS

Come and chat any time

PATH is keen to see that carers and people with disabilities achieve the best possible, most appropriate plan under the National Disability Insurance scheme.  Do you need help with the planning process, or support at planning or review meetings, for you or your loved one?  Contact PATH’s Manager, Shirley, to talk about the support and advocacy we can offer.

The NDIS is potentially a wonderful scheme, but feedback we have received indicates it could be better.  PATH, in partnership with other organisations and individuals in the Penrith, Blue Mountains and Hawkesbury areas, wants your feedback on the NDIS.  We are compiling the feedback and we will pass it on to the National Disability Insurance Agency.  Your feedback will be completely anonymous, unless you want us to help you work for a better plan.

You are most welcome to pop into PATH’s office and chat with the Manager, Shirley, or phone or email us.

Monthly Coffee Club for NDIS Participants & Carers

What happens in the Coffee Club?

That is determined by the group.  For example: we may ask workers with specific knowledge that could benefit participants to attend a session to speak or provide 1 on 1 consultations in that time to answer your individual questions.

We are looking to meet over a coffee on the first Monday of the month.  A scrumptious morning tea is provided.

When:    First Monday of the month

10.00 am – 12.00 noon

Where:   Suite 115 The Community Connection, first floor

114-116 Henry Street, Penrith, NSW 2750

For catering purposes we would find it helpful to know if you will be attending, so just a quick email acceptance or a phone call would be great.

Resource Library

  • Books and DVDs on a range of topics, but specially addressing autism and Asperger’s Syndrome
  • Sensory equipment – weighted toys, blankets and vests; small ‘fiddle’ toys – and more!

We have available free for loan an extensive range of books and DVDs, and a number of items of sensory equipment for children.  Sensory equipment can be expensive to buy – and you don’t know if it is effective until your child has tried it.  This way, you can try before you go to the expense of buying it.

Note: A small refundable deposit is required at the time of the loan.
