The Our Way Planning resource was developed in consultation with First Peoples with disability, Elders and community members across NSW, the Northern Territory, Queensland and the Torres Strait Islands.

FPDN runs workshops with community members using the resources we have created to enable them to better understand the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and their rights. Our resources are disability and culturally accessible and culturally safe.

FPDN runs training for service providers and government agencies interested in working with us.

The Our Way Planning resource can be purchased as part of a training package.

“The Our Way Planning resource uses the traditional method of art and story-telling to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders living with disability to identify areas of their life they need assistance with. The book is designed to recognise the importance of culture, community and Country. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can use the book in their own way to identify what type of support is needed to help keep them keep strong in their relationships, their family, community and culture.”
