Karakan - NDIS Provider Number - 4050004828
“The NDIS is a new way of delivering disability support. The NDIS takes a flexible, whole-of-life approach working with eligible participants, their families and carers, to develop individualised plans. The NDIS provides participants with more choice and control over how, when and where their supports are provided. It also provides certainty that they will receive the support they need over their lifetime.” NDIS Website
With the recent signing of an agreement between the Queensland Government and the NDIS the rollout of NDIS services has begun in Queensland. By 2019, there will be just under 100,000 people in Queensland receiving support under the NDIS - an increase of over 50,000 people compared to the number of people in Queensland receiving support in 2016.
We have been providing a variety of NDIS Supports in the Toowoomba region since the 1st of January this year and during the recent 'roll-out' throughout Ipswich and the Lockyer Valley. Although we have seen the initial challenges and struggles with the NDIS, we have also seen many participants start to thrive and access services and supports that they never thought possible.
People in Brisbane, Logan and the Redlands won't receive NDIS support until July 2018, however Karakan will begin providing support in Toowoomba as of the 1st of July 2017. As we already provide Supported Employment in this community through KBH Enterprises, we will look to expand our support in the Toowoomba region to include 1-on-1 Support, Group Supports, Community Access Support and Supported Holidays for people that identify these services as part of their NDIS plans.
