Better Start for Children with Disability Initiative – Moving Forward Workshops

The Moving Forward workshops have been developed for parents and guardians whose child is preparing for or has recently entered primary school and who are looking at how to best support their child during this transition period. The workshops will provide information on resources, funding, transitioning to school, and support services for families at the end of the Better Start initiative. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the systems and supports available for their child when the Better Start period concludes, as well as discuss and share experiences, challenges and aspirations for the future with other families.  

The workshop will also cover Information on the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) including the rollout of the NDIS in Victoria and strategies for planning for the move to the NDIS.

The workshops are free and morning tea and lunch will be provided.  

Parents/carers attending must be in receipt of Better Start funding. Please book early as there are only 12 places available at each workshop. Register your interest below.

Please note: No childcare is available and children are not able to attend the workshop.
