We Provide Local Support For The NDIS
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will commence rollout in Toowoomba and the South West from 1 January 2017 and MIFQ - Mental Illness Fellowship Queensland is ready to make this journey with you.
MIFQ is a not-for-profit support service, working across Queensland, with a base in Toowoomba, servicing the South West. We are hard at work supporting people that would like to access the NDIS. MIFQ has an in depth understanding of how the NDIS works and is supporting people to access the NDIS now. We have been working with the State Government for more than two years, in various projects to help people living with mental health concerns, their families and carers to prepare for the NDIS. We have also been selected as an interim Local Area Coordinator, assisting the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to help the Toowoomba and South West community link to the NDIS, connect to the right information and support, and work with the local community to make sure it is welcoming and inclusive for people with disability and mental health concerns.
MIFQ can assist people to register for an NDIS plan and support people who already have a plan in place. MIFQ understands your journey is personal, and support when you need it is a key component of recovery.
If you are in the Toowoomba or South West region of Queensland, call MIFQ’s Toowoomba office on 4632 0788 to get the most up to date information about mental health and the NDIS.
