Parents and carers

Conversations I have had


By Marriott , August 22 2017

Today I spoke with a parent who “did not want anything to do with the NDIS”.

The anxiety and frustration in their voice was completely understandable.
It is natural from what we have heard in the press to wonder what supports will continue and many people are afraid they will lose supports.
I am having conversations with parents, carers, partners about the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and the reoccurring theme is how baffled, anxious everyone feels about changes under NDIS and some people feel angry too.

It is like an unfathomable monster that has us all retreating back to what we know.
Is this how you are feeling about the looming NDIS transition? You are not alone and you are understood.

OK so it is scary having the system change without our permission. The reality is that for many people the disability resources funded through government were not fair or universal.
The NDIS is a change which seeks to improve funding so that it is fair and available to those who need it.

At Marriott Support Services we are here to support you and your loved one to make the change as smooth as possible.
We want to help you prepare for your NDIS plan to ensure you request all the supports you currently have and extra ones to improve life opportunities.
