Macedon Ranges Health is offering a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) forum on Saturday 21 May 2016. It will provide information for people with a disability, their families and carers, and service providers about the NDIS, including practical tips and insights from those who have already experienced the NDIS in the Barwon trial.
Following the community information session, Local Service Providers will have information tables for you to visit.
