About the NDIS Readiness Project

The Youth Disability Advocacy Service (YDAS) has been funded by the Victorian Government to help young people with disability across Victoria get ready for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). We’ll be doing this two ways:

  • Delivering workshops face-to-face
  • Creating digital content and engagement young people online


Our workshops can be delivered flexibly and can vary in length and topic to suit your needs. Our main focus is young people with disability. The three topics are:

NDIS 101

What is the NDIS, how do you join and what happens when you’re on the NDIS?

What do you want to do with your life?

How to think about your goals and the support you need to achieve them.

How to speak up

What types of setbacks might come up when you talk to your family or the NDIS? How do you get support to speak up?

If you’d like us to speak with you, your school or group about the NDIS, then get in touch. Our workshops can be presented together or individually over several visits.
