Living Life My Way: supporting Aboriginal people
NDCO Hunter-Central Coast's insight:

You can also download the Yarn Ups report from this website... Talking to Aboriginal people... In June and July 2013, the NSW Government went out to Aboriginal communities across NSW to talk to Aboriginal people with disability, their families, carers and communities about the transition to the NDIS and how they need to be supported to be ready for it. What Aboriginal people told us at these Yarn Ups has been summarised in the Yarnin’ about Disability – sharing what Aboriginal people told us report. This report is helping guide how we support Aboriginal people in NSW.
