NDIS Business Seminars for First Nations People

By 10/06/2022No Comments

As you know, one of the gaps in the NDIS is the number of services that are available and there is also a big gap in culturally appropriate services.

CSIA have three indigenous business consulting firms delivering business start-up/help sessions this month all over Queensland.  They are specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Would appreciate your help in getting the word out about these free workshops, hoping you can share the invitation with networks, community and/or community leaders.

The NDIS Business Development workshops are suitable for people who may:

  • Already be caring for or providing support to family or friends
  • Have a business idea that could be used by an NDIS participant
  • Be interested to know more about starting a business

And, those that:

  • Want to start a business that serves NDIS customers
  • Want to add NDIS services on to their existing business
  • Are delivering NDIS services but want to understand the business side of things.

We have a few resources that could be useful to get the word out.
