The Right Track

The City of Playford has partnered with the City of Salisbury to produce The Right Track Toolkit and webinar series, funded by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) program.

Community engagement and consultation with our local Aboriginal and culturally and linguistically diverse communities informed the design and development of the toolkit, with content addressing their specific barriers to understanding and accessing the NDIS. This diverse contribution from community is based on lived experience. It has assisted in the identification of barriers that prevent people getting the help they need, such as difficulty translating NDIS jargon and cultural stigma surrounding disability. Finally, we have asked our community to provide their feedback and artistic contribution to create an authentic, culturally positive and easy to read toolkit.

Two toolkits have been designed to provide tailored support to help our community connect with the NDIS, disability services and mainstream services; one for our culturally and linguistically diverse communities and the second toolkit for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We have also worked together with community and consultants to develop tailored webinars that focus on:

  • NDIS processes, procedures and pointers
  • Building your understanding and confidence of disability

We hope the webinars will be used to assist people living with disability to stay on “The Right Track” to understanding how the NDIS can work for them and their family.
