Welcome to
DiverseAbility: NDIS Inclusion Conference
On 19, April, 2018, Parramatta, Sydney

Settlement Services International (SSI) invites you to take part in "DiverseAbility: NDIS Inclusion", a conference that, for the first time in NSW, will raise and discuss issues and challenges that are specific to people with disability from a culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) background, and in particular, relating to their access and experiences with the NDIS.

Why Attend?


Research conducted by SSI FutureAbility project, found that people from CALD backgrounds with disability are noticeably under-represented in the existing disability service and support systems in Australia, despite having similar disability rates than the Australian-born, English speaking population.

Join CALD and disability experts, practitioners, CALD NDIS-users, community groups and members in a discussion to identify ways to improve the engagement and participation of people with disability from CALD background into the NDIS in order to achieve a better quality of life and increased economic and social participation.  "DiverseAbility: NDIS Inclusion" conference will be held on Thursday, April 19,
