Funding Support and Advocacy
The WA State Government has announced WA will join the federally-run National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
Starting July 1, 2018, the national scheme will replace the WA-based scheme. All WA NDIS participants will transfer to the national system in stages on a geographic basis and will be fully rolled out across WA by 2020.
Whether you are just starting your NDIS journey or looking for transition help from the State scheme, give us a call today.
What is “funding” help?
Navigating what funding you are eligible for can be overwhelming. At Community Vision we work with you to identify relevant government funding streams, connect you with the correct people and provide information on advocacy and support to ensure that you are receiving the right type of funding. We also design our services creatively to ensure that you are getting the best possible outcome from your funding help.
Community Vision understands that funding is different for every individual. Community Vision ensures that they are up to date with all funding streams in Western Australia including NDIS, Department of Communities (formally Disability Services Commission), Department of Child Protection and Respite Funding.
We understand that it can be challenging to navigate and keep on top of this process, so we recommend contacting us so that we can give you personalised advice based on your circumstances.
What is advocacy help?
Navigating the bureaucracy of government is never easy. When you are a person with a disability, there are sometimes more obstacles than you can tackle alone. Community Vision provides a helping hand by acting as your advocate when you deal with the government.
We can assist with advocacy in several ways, including:
- Helping you access Centrelink services
- Assisting you with rental applications
- Connect you with other relevant services in your community
Advocacy is not limited to these services; the exact kind of help depends on your needs. We can tailor an advocacy plan to suit your circumstances.
How can I get started with funding and advocacy help?
The first step is to contact us on 1800 968 754. Funding and advocacy support are always specific to your needs. We start by working with you to identify those needs.
