Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

A presentation by Vaughan Dodd and colleagues (Work and Income Disability Advisors) – Hosted by Disability Connect.

These free seminars will clearly explain the types of Work and Income supports which individuals may be eligible for if living with a disability or raising a child with a disability. Eligibility criteria will be explained – also whether particular supports are means tested or not, and income thresholds if they are.

The main Work and Income supports being discussed are:
- Supported Living Payment
- Accommodation Supplement
- Child Disability Allowance
- Disability Allowance
- Supported Living Payment – Care of Sick and Infirm

As Work and Income Disability Advisors these presenters cannot participate in personal discussions regarding individual’s circumstances – Disability Advisors liaise directly with frontline Work and Income staff. Their presentation will be broad and informational. Any questions or individual issues can be addressed to Disability Connect staff and we will endeavour to have your questions answered.

Tea/coffee and biscuits will be available 15 minutes prior to the start of the seminar.

Disability Connect now charges $50 including GST for each professional (working in the disability sector) attending our seminars. This can be paid by cash, cheque (made out to our full organisation name Parent and Family Resource Centre Inc.) or direct debit.

We do not accept credit card or Eftpos payments. We are happy to send an invoice at time of booking of a professional and payment is required prior to attendance. Refunds will only be given if you cancel and this must be made at least 24 hours prior to the seminar. Please phone to cancel.

There is no charge for parents or family members attending.
RSVP is essential: 09 636 0351 or admin@disabilityconnect.org.nz.
