The NDIS and a Vinnies LAC have transformed the life of one participant in the Campbelltown area:
“I am the carer for my 65 year old sister. Prior to the NDIS, my sister only went out in the community when I took her shopping or to doctor’s appointments. She had no friends and I was the main person she talked to".
Now, two days a week are spent at a local community centre doing activities that interest her, like art and craft. The other three days are spent out in the community. Sometimes, she even goes out in the evening for dinner at the local club. Her confidence levels have increased and she is just so excited to go on outings. At first she was very shy to join in with the group but now that’s all she talks about.
I’m so happy she has become more independent.”
