For many mental health carers, the NDIS can feel like a complex new system full of unfamiliar language. Carer Coach breaks this new process down into manageable steps, presented in clear and accessible language. Carer Coach aims to make carers feel more at ease with the NDIS and to build their knowledge and skills.

Our online NDIS training modules cover from when the person you care for is just beginning to consider the NDIS right through to when they are using their NDIS plan.
