What’s On!

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 for you or your loved one?  Contact PATH’s Manager, Shirley and talk about your options.

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.

Also, if you want to prepare yourself to work much more effectively with the NDIS, come and attend some excellent FREE training:

Living Life My Way

Getting Prepared 2016-2018

The NSW Department of Family and Community Services (FACS), Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC), has invested in a significant number of projects to build the capacity of people with disability, families and carers to exercise choice and control and prepare for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). These projects also provide opportunities to connect with other people with disability, families and carers.


Getting plan review ready workshop

Once a NDIS plan is approved, this is generally in place for 12 months. Before the plan ends, the plan will be reviewed. This is called a scheduled review. The getting plan review ready workshop is a practical workshop to support participants, carers and their families to prepare for a meeting with a LAC for their plan review.
