In 2019; 53 people took part in our survey.
Thank you to those of you who took the time to answer the survey.
43 of the people connected with our Coordination of Support Services, 34 people use plan management services ( clearly a number of people have both services).
Two respondents utilised the option to speak with an independent person directly rather than answering the online survey, one of those did so through an interpreter.
39 of you identified as family members and 12 of you were people with disability who received services from you. 2 of you had other roles.
37 of the people who responded were very happy with the services you receive from futures in sight. 13 of you were happy or between happy and very happy. 2 of you were less than happy and 1 of you was not happy with our services.

3. Some of you wanted to know more about what’s new with the NDIS and also learn more about what is possible and what other people do. In response to that we are working on:
