Why should you come?

With the NDIS rolling out across the state, it is an exciting time in our sector. For people with a disability, the NDIS means choice and control over how they receive supports, and greater opportunities to increase independence and achieve goals and aspiration.  For disability support workers, the NDIS presents enormous career opportunities with more than 13,000 new jobs anticipated in Queensland alone.  There has never been a better time to upskill and reinvigorate your knowledge around caring for people with disabilities and take your career to the next level.   

As a support worker, this conference has been specifically designed to:
> Help you feel prepared for the NDIS and what the sector looks like for you. > Take away practical skills to implement into your daily job. > Meet and learn from other support workers. > Network with other organisations. > Be empowered to be the best you can and provide better services to those you support.
