NDIS Forum for workers Friday 5th August

Join us this Friday for an opportunity to discuss the learnings from the NDIS trial sites and the issues workers and service delivery providers will face in the rollout of the NDIS in Central Queensland.

The forum is open to all members of The Services Union and workers across the disability sector in Central Queensland. Assistant State Secretary, Jennifer Thomas, has been an active representative on the NDIS Workforce State Advisory Group and will lead a discussion on what has been learnt, what has been achieved, and the challenges we will still face.

Event details:

This is the first opportunity to discuss the challenges of the NDIS from a workforce and employer perspective in Rockhampton.

  • How will organisations balance the flexibility needed under the new business model while still providing employment certainty and training to offer quality services demanded by clients?
  • What standards and qualifications might be required in a growing sector?
  • What new services and employment opportunities might open up and how will these fit within the industry structures we have right now?

Join The Services Union, in conjunction with IFYS, to discuss these questions and more.

The NDIS is coming

Understanding Cancer Event: July 7

As part of NAIDOC Week, Cancer Council Queensland will be delivering an Understanding Cancer & Cancer Reflection event at Bidgerdii Health Service, July 7.

This event aims to assist the local community in understanding the pathophysiology of cancer and the main types of treatments available; as well as reflecting on one’s personal experience with cancer (friends, family or self). This event also provides participants the opportunity to ask questions of facilitators who work in closely with people with cancer in understanding services and coping with emotions concurrent to a cancer diagnosis. Ultimately, this event is designed to provide an understanding, reduce the stigma and celebrate life.
