Stay up to date with developments in the NDIS and let us do the legwork!

It takes time and effort to understand the NDIS. Many carers of people with disability in NSW are finding it hard to keep up.

The Carers NSW NDIS Update aims to make it easier for carers to stay on top of NDIS news, resources and events.

As the peak organisation for carers in NSW, we want to help carers get the best outcomes possible from the NDIS for themselves and the people they care for.

Carers and the NDIS is a two part workshop being rolled out across NSW throughout 2017.

  • Part 1:  An introduction to the NDIS
  • Part 2: Your role as a carer in the NDIS. This part includes working within a supported decision making framework.

NDIS checklist

Carers NSW encourages carers of people with disability in NSW to complete our NDIS checklist when preparing for an NDIS planning conversation. It aims to help carers explain the support they provide, and any support they need as carers.

For more information, please contact the Carers NSW Policy Team at or on (02) 9280 4744.

Carers Australia resources
