Planning is an important first step in getting ready for the NDIS. With the right tools, people with disability can think about their lives and the supports they need to live a ‘deadly’ life.
With that in mind, the ‘My Dreamin’ Circles’ planning tool has been developed, with input from Aboriginal people with disability, their families and carers.
The focus of the tool is to strengthen the person’s ability to choose their goals and aspirations and guide their life choices.
Using the Dreamin’ Circles, anyone can begin working out how to have a ‘deadly’ life.
For more information about the My Dreamin’ Circles you can contact Heather.Peters@facs.nsw.gov.au
