What the NDIS means to me, By Elvi and Charlie.

We are very happy to hear that the NDIS will be rolled out in the near future.  It will change people’s lives and make us feel happy.

Charlie – “Elvi, what does the NDIS mean to you”?

“I think everybody should get a fair go.  I think this should have happened many, many years ago.   I would like to have more access to support so that I can go out in the community independently. “

Charlie “Would you like to go to the city”?

Elvi – “Yes!  I’d also like to go to places like the city and go to museums and visit places I’ve never been before.  I’d also like to be able to travel and go on holidays and just have fun!  That would be good for me.

Elvi, “Charlie, what does the NDIS mean to you”?

Charlie – “I would like to have extra support to learn how to read and write.  I’d like to be able to read a book.  Sometimes I need extra support with my mobility and I’d like to be able to go out without feeling unsafe. 

Elvi- “Would you like to be able to go out on your own”?

Charlie “Maybe.  But only when I have my confidence back.  It’s also hard for my mum and dad.

I’d also like to get a job in a shoe factory and learn how to sort shoes and other skills.  I really like shoes!”
