NDIS will roll out across the Gladstone region

From 1 January 2018, the NDIS will roll out across the Gladstone region – are you ready?

Gladstone Community Linking Agency is here to help!

Debbie King has taken on the role of GCLA’s new Customer Relation Manager working with a speciliased team to help you get ready for the NDIS.

NDIS planning workshops and individual meetings are currently being held with current GCLA customers to assist and prepare for the upcoming changes.  We want you to be ready with a specilaised plan to make the most of your NDIS opportunities.

After attending the NDIS Readiness Planning event, Karla Sheppard and Angela and Gary Laing are not feeling as nervous moving forward to the NDIS and feel it will be more manageable, especially with GCLA assisting “We would be lost without them”

From 1 January 2016, early transition to the NDIS has been available in the Local Government Areas of Townsville City, Charters Towers Regional Council and Palm Island Aboriginal Shire. From 1 July 2016, the NDIS will roll out across the rest of Queensland geographically.
