Van in town to talk NDIS

McIvor Times - - NEWS - By MICHAEL MAT­TINGLY

IF YOU live with a dis­abil­ity or know some­one who does, and want to know more about the Na­tional Dis­abil­ity In­sur­ance Scheme (NDIS), catch the NDIS in­tereach in­for­ma­tion iVan at the Heath­cote Fam­ily Fun Day at Bar­rack Re­serve this Fri­day.

In­tereach pro­vides ser­vices to ru­ral and re­mote com­mu­ni­ties and works along­side chil­dren, fam­i­lies, older peo­ple, car­ers and peo­ple liv­ing with a dis­abil­ity.

The iVan has made 74 vis­its across the re­gion since late last year, and Heath­cote is next on its agenda.

“The great thing about iVan is be­cause we’re out in the com­mu­nity and quite vis­i­ble, peo­ple will ap­proach us for a chat,” In­tereach chief ex­ec­u­tive Keryn Fox said.

“iVan re­ally gets us into the heart of our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties, helps us meet peo­ple face-to-face and be able to an­swer their ques­tions about the NDIS.

“So, if you’re at the Heath­cote Sum­mer Fam­ily Day, stop by for a chat, we’re al­ways happy to help.”

Area co­or­di­na­tor Erin Smith and the In­tereach NDIS in­for­ma­tion van will be at the Heath­cote Fam­ily Fun Day on Fri­day.
