It’s a scary, worrying time at the moment. And things are changing every day.

And because things are changing fast, good simple clear information is more important than ever.

We have even less time and patience than usual to go on the hunt for what we need.

We’ve collected as much information as possible for people with disability, their families and carers all in one place. We’ll be updating it daily to make sure everyone in the Every Australian Counts community has the info they need at their fingertips.

We are focused on information that NDIS participants and their families need to know. So there is lots of info about the NDIS. But we also have information and resources that would be helpful for ALL people with disability and their families – whether they have an NDIS plan or not.

This page has some resources you might find helpful.

We have Frequently Asked Questions about the NDIS on this page (without all the jargon).

And all the latest NDIS and coronavirus news is here.

But we know you might still have more questions – so use the form on this page to send us your question and we’ll try and get an answer for you.

 

And just remember …

We are a community of people with disability and their families and those who support them. We know many people in this incredible community are particularly vulnerable and that can be scary.

But we also know something else about this community. When we come together we are powerful.

So while we all have to keep our physical distance from each other, we will find other ways to come closer together to look out for one another. It’s the only way we are going to make it through.

And just remember – while at times it might feel like it, you are not alone.
