Why choose a VALID NDIS training program?

  • We’ve been providing NDIS training since it was introduced in 2016.

Our approach for families

We actively engage with families to empower them and encourage person-centred approaches.

Families are often the primary source of information, support, guidance and advocacy for people with a disability. It makes sense to invest in ensuring families are well-informed and well-supported to play that role positively and effectively.

We support you to:

  • Be partners in advocating for the rights and interests of your family member with a disability
  • Be allies in the provision of support to your family member
  • Improve your understanding of your responsibilities, as well as the rights and the responsibilities of staff and services
