Our People to Live Stronger & Longer

NDIS Ready Yarning Circle

Thank you to NACCHO for hosting the NDIS Ready Yarning Circle (for remote and very remote ACCHOs) in Darwin. With attendees from various government departments, social services, advocacy groups and affiliates, the two-day event was both a learning and networking opportunity.

It was insightful to hear how ACCHOs from across the country have navigated the scheme and made it work for their communities. They shared their solutions to common barriers, and their tips and tricks to success in the NDIS space. A key feature of these discussions was the need for more sustainable ways of delivering holistic disability support. ACCHOs have achieved this by developing models of care that align with their clinical services and the NDIS practice standards.

In addition to hearing from ACCHOs, attendees participated in a round of “speed dating” with government and non-government stakeholders. This was an opportunity to have more intimate discussions about the needs of the sector and determine how all parties can work together towards a common goal. From this, we were able to create an action plan with our newly formed partnerships.
