Far North has been successful in obtaining 2 Information, Linkages and Capacity Building Grants. The grants will enable us to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Kimberley to engage with individual planning with the WA NDIS in a culturally secure manner.

The project will focus on information being provided in culturally appropriate ways so that Aboriginal people have a greater awareness of the WA NDIS and how they can test their eligibility, plan for supports and access reasonable and necessary services. This information will also be made available to non-Aboriginal people.

Far North Community Services Ltd will use a collaborative partnership approach to provide culturally appropriate information and advice on the WA NDIS by working with existing organisations, aboriginal corporations and local and state government to departments to explain the NDIS and referral pathways and planning processes.
