The right representation

Jennifer applied to the NDIS for a review to ensure her functional needs were taken into account to live independantly.

Jennifer approached PWDA for assistance after attending a PWDA Reviews and Appeals training session, where she discovered her supports had been significantly underfunded in her NDIS plan.

She believed she was misrepresented at her original planning meeting and her functional needs were not taken into account for her to live independently and to reach her goals.

How PWDA helped

As her funding was about to run out, Jennifer asked PWDA for support and advice on how to submit a new application for a change of circumstances.

A planning meeting was scheduled with the NDIS, where she felt her needs were finally understood.

After this meeting, Jennifer was approved for a new NDIS plan which substantially increased her funding, offering her much more choice and options to meet her needs and remain independant.

Jennifer felt very happy with her new plan, which allowed her to work towards achieving her personal goals.
