November 2018 in Broome, Kristie and Alex where involved in one of the first Yarning groups of its kind. A group of Aboriginal individuals with disability, carers and families coming together to discuss the NDIS and share their stories. The ‘Yarning Group’ development and subsequent attendances was made possible through the ILC Grant. Part of the grant also allowed for the provision of a Kriol interpreter to assist around the circle.
Overall group consensus is that the session was helpful and the NDCO program will continue to establish Yarning Groups in Derby and Fitzroy Crossing.
