A new resource has been released which assists people with disability to exercise control over their response to COVID-19.
The COVID-19 Planning Resource for people with disability helps people with disability exercise control by planning how to manage during the pandemic, and what to do if they experience symptoms.
COVID-19 Planning resource for people with disability
The COVID-19 Planning resource for people with disability helps people with disability get the facts about COVID-19, make a plan for how they will manage during the pandemic, and know what to do if they experience symptoms.
The resource was developed by researchers at the University of Sydney, in partnership with the Queenslanders with Disability Network.
Please share the resource with the people you support, and their families/guardians, as this is one way to support NDIS participants to exercise choice and control in the current situation.
