These sessions are designed to target people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities and will be held in various locations across Sydney metro areas and NSW.

The Community Information Sessions provide CALD communities with much needed in-language information around different disability types, how to access the NDIS, and supports available through the Scheme.

The sessions offer an opportunity to enhance the community participation and quality of life of people with disabilities from CALD backgrounds, so they are more likely to seek out help and live more inclusive and enjoyable lives in their community.
