NSW CID Conference Wrap Up & Presentations!
NSW CID held our annual conference - “We are worth the investment - people with intellectual disability & the NDIS” over 2 days in July.
With over 450 people in attendance it was an exciting event with much discussion, information sharing and conversation occurring.
Hearing from people already accessing the NDIS proved to be a highlight for many people along with the participation of people with intellectual disability as presenters and facilitators.
Having key NDIA officials and senior staff take part was also an important part of the event. NSW CID was pleased to have such engagement from the agency and look forward to continuing to work with them on NDIS policies.
NSW CID is now busily preparing our conference report which will be released shortly. It will include the key messages raised at the conference and an update on our advocacy priorities.
NSW CID is headed to Canberra on August 12 & 13 to meet with Parliamentarians, DSS, Commonwealth Ombudsman and policy makers to progress the issues raised at the conference.
We’ve prepared our “Key Messages” which can be viewed here.
