Australia's MND March of Faces Banners are a photographic display of people with motor neurone disease. The banners are displayed at various MND awareness raising and remembrance events throughout the year. Our 20th banner in the MND March of Faces series will be displayed during MND Week 2018. If you have MND and would like to be included in the new banner, you need to complete a permission form and submit a photograph of yourself. Family members are also able to submit a photograph in remembrance of a person who has died from MND. More info here.
We are really happy to see some changes to be piloted by the NDIS in the coming months. We have been advocating hard for these! The proposed changes include no more phone planning, planners who have better understanding of the different types of disabilities and recognition that some groups of people might need extra help navigating the NDIS including people with more complex needs.
