Tweed briefed on disability

TWEED Heads locals will get a chance to find out more about the National Disability Insurance Scheme, which is being rolled out across Australia.

The My Choice Matters workshop will attempt to help people with a disability (image courtesy of get the most out of the changes to the sector.

It will consist of two sessions.


The ‘Become a Leader’ course is the ground-breaking My Leadership Matters program, which is a training course designed for people with disability and family members to develop their skills to become a leader in their own life and/or in their communities.

Participants will learn new skills and knowledge, whilst sharing and learning with others as they are challenged to reflect, grow and create change.

The other is called ‘Run Projects’ and it offers people with disability and their family members the chance to apply for a grant of up to $5,000 to co-run a project with My Choice Matters. These projects are a way for people with disability to explore their interests, learn new skills and experiment with new ways of doing things.
