A workshop for people with disabilities and their carers this Saturday will help demystify the National Disability Insurance Scheme, organisers say.

Speak Up, which has been organised by Pinarc Disability Support, will feature speakers from Grampians disAbility Advocacy, the office of the Disability Services Commissioner, the Disability Discrimination Legal Service and VALiD.

“There’s a lot of confusion around the NDIS and everybody seems to have their L plates on so I think it’s a good opportunity to speak up and get some answers,” Grampians disAbility Advocacy’s Fiona Tipping said. 

Speak Up Workshop is on Saturday, June 24 at The Trench Room, Ballarat Town Hall from noon to 5pm.

Tickets are $8. Book at https://www.trybooking.com/QCCK.
