If you heard Deb Milford speak on BPD and the NDIS at February’s Sanctuary meeting, I’m sure you’d agree with us that it was special!
Among the many positive emails from members, one of you wrote:
“Sanctuary was FANTASTIC tonight! She is AMAZING! Thank you so much for organising her… so articulate, knowledgeable of BPD….!!!!!”
Deb gets BPD, knows the NDIS system and knows how to share her knowledge
She explained how to apply for NDIS and she provided a set of notes: Its all about the Legislation
Deb has helped many BPD Consumers access NDIS funding and reminded us how painful and lengthy the application process can be…
But also that NDIS funding is lifelong and life changing for carers and for those they care about
As Deb might say: Start gathering your evidence

NDIS is the National Disability Insurance Scheme, a scheme of the Australian Government that supports Australians with disability with funding, to build skills and capability, so they can participate socially and economically in the community.
NDIS application forms are available from the NDIS website
* Access Request Form

Here are some helpful documents, to guide you in gathering evidence in support of your application:
