Yumarrala Ngarrdji

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander NDIS Access Project


Banyule Community Health Services, Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network and Wellways are working together on Yumarrala Ngarrdji – a project that seeks to identify and address the barriers that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities face in accessing the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

We are also interested in producing culturally relevant resources for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community regarding the NDIS. We understand how important it is for community members to have a voice and are therefore seeking community participation in the production of these resources.

Do you have experience with the NDIS? Would you like to be paid for sharing your time and expertise in producing NDIS resources specific to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community? If you answered yes, we want to hear from you! Please call Julio on 0448 107 034 or email jestorninho@wellways.org for more information.

Please note : due to the COVID-19 pandemic our co-production team meetings will be conducted online via Zoom. You must have access to a computer and knowledge of Zoom to participate.
