Your workbook

To help support your application we have developed the tool Reimagine Your Life: A workbook to support you. As you work through this website you will be guided to activities in the workbook where you can write down your ideas and answers. You can then use this workbook to help support your NDIS application. In your workbook you will find a section called ‘About Me’. This is something you can use when you meet new support people to help them understand who you are. You can include as much or as little information in it as you want. Make sure you add all the important information you would like people to know but remember to be safe and only put information you are comfortable sharing.
