New CoMHWA Pilot Project to Support Peer Choices in the NDIS – Coming Soon!
March 13, 2018
CoMHWA is proud to announce an exciting new project coming soon that will support people to exercise more choice and control in engaging with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
The ‘Peer Choices’ Project will support people with mental health related (psychosocial) disabilities who are engaged in the NDIS to grow knowledge and confidence to plan and choose supports. Peer Choices will offer peer support, peer-led supported decision making, peer mentorship and peer education. Those who take part in Peer Choices will increase their knowledge, skills and confidence for communication and self-advocacy in navigating the NDIS. The project has been designed by and for people with psychosocial disabilities and is funded by the Department of Communities.
Disability Services Minister Stephen Dawson has congratulated CoMHWA among a number of local organisations who have received grants to help make communities more welcoming, accessible and inclusive of people with disability. The grant awarded to CoMHWA will mean new resources and supports designed for and by people with psychosocial disability.
