NDIS helps Briahna Grant-Griffin set up rag doll business with push-button sewing machine

Briahna Grant-Griffin dreams of one-day having her own place with a pink and purple front door.

The same passion for colour goes into her fabric choices for the rag dolls she makes and sells to bring her goal closer.

Thanks to a push-button sewing machine paid for through the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Ms Grant-Griffin is setting up her own business Lis & Bri Upcycling with help from her mum Alisa Griffin.

“For Briahna to go into the workforce she would need a full-time carer with her, so it kind of defeated the purpose,” Ms Griffin said.
