Information Forums

Do you need support navigating the NDIS journey for yourself or the person you care for?

We can help! Over 1,700 people have attended Endeavour Foundation’s NDIS Information Forums across Australia since they started in 2014. These sessions are designed to provide clarity, knowledge and confidence about the NDIS.

Our NDIS information forums typically include:

  • An overview of the NDIS: what it is, why it has been implemented and what it means for you and your family
  • A step-by-step guide to what to expect in the planning process – what happens, how to prepare, questions to ask, what you will be asked – from experts who have helped hundreds of families through the process
  • The opportunity to ask any questions relevant to you or your circumstances during a Q&A session
  • A pre-planning workshop using the Mapping My World booklet designed to prepare you for your NDIS planning meeting. In small groups, a local Endeavour Foundation staff member will step you through the pre-planning booklet and answer any questions you may have
  • Free resources and an information pack to take away with you.

The forums are:

  • Free of charge
  • About 2.5 – 3 hours long and you will connect with local staff who can continue to support you, if you wish.
  • Held in NDIS sites ahead of roll out
  • Open to anyone who would like to attend – you don’t have to be an Endeavour Foundation customer.
