Cherbourg Wellbeing is one of of four groups in the Wide Bay electorate which will receive funding under a Federal Government program aimed at helping businesses transition to the NDIS.

The former Cherbourg Sports Club Inc will receive $20,000 as part of the $9 million national initiative.

Federal Member for Wide Bay Llew O’Brien said the grants were provided through Round 2 of the Transition Assistance Funding initiative under the Boosting the Local Care Workforce program.

The objective of the Transition Assistance Funding is to help providers transition to the NDIS while also creating more jobs in the disability sector, particularly in regional, rural and remote areas across Australia.

“This funding will help Wide Bay organisations in their early stages of transition, ensuring they have the tools and capabilities needed to deliver supports to NDIS participants,” Mr O’Brien said.

“Transition Assistance Funding can be used for tailored business advice, software upgrades and other one-on-one supports that will go a long way towards helping local businesses to get NDIS-ready.”

The other Wide Bay organisations to receive funding are:

  • Kieran Broome, Occupational Therapist – Imbil – $6372
  • Encompass Health Services – Noosa Heads – $10,000
  • About Freedom – Gympie – $20,000

    More grant monies from the LNP to cover up the mess that is the NDIS under their “management” let alone the severe underfunding of billions and the huge amount of folks missing out that has led to many Australians dying whilst waiting for applications to go through the confusing process.

    Despite the LNP Minister claiming none have, the reports show over 1200 folks have passed while waiting…

    Disgraceful LNP governance is on display. The old “blame the ALP: despite being in government now into their 7th year. Doesn’t pass the pub test by any stretch.
