Watch our NDIS Quick Fact Videos for Important Information about the NDIS
Written on the 21 June 2017
As the NDIS rollout approaches across many regional areas in South Australia, we have found a creative way to inform people about the scheme.
Partnering with a long-time client and now volunteer of the organisation within the Marketing Team Michael Reardon, we have started to develop a series of short videos or 'Quick Facts' to provide bite-sized amounts of information on the NDIS.
The topics we are covering range from - what the NDIS is, to how to prepare for an NDIS Plan and that first planning meeting, to what the rollout dates are across the state, to what supports are and are not funded, and to what the eligibility criteria to access them scheme is.
We have already completed the development of 6 NDIS Quick Facts they are available for viewing on our website at www.claust.com.au/ndis-quick-facts, with many more becoming available soon.
Mark Kulinski, Chief Executive of Community Living Australia, explains the project saying; 'The quick fact videos demonstrate how the organisation is utilising different platforms to get the NDIS message out to our clients and families. We understand that significant changes like the NDIS can be quite daunting and that is why we are committed to working with our clients and families every step of the way to ensure they receive maximum benefit from this exciting new scheme.'
'What these quick fact videos seek to do is to make transitioning to the NDIS easier for our clients and families. We wanted to provide them with information that was short, to the point and easy to digest unlike most of the information surrounding the NDIS. The Quick Facts discuss one topic at a time and just present the absolute key information,' added Donna Adams, Project Manager NDIS Readiness.
Michael Reardon is a university student studying Journalism and International Relations at UniSA and has been volunteering in the Marketing Team over the past twelve-month period with a significant part of his role involving presenting the NDIS Quick Fact videos in a creative and engaging way.
'When I was asked to help develop and present the NDIS Quick Fact videos, I jumped at the opportunity because as someone who has been surrounded by disability all my life I understand the challenges people with disabilities face. I know how exciting, yet daunting the NDIS can be and I wanted to support Community Living Australia in communicating the scheme to people with disability, their families and the general community. I believe it is a huge game changer for South Australians living with disabilities moving forward,' tells Michael Reardon.
