Intereach is bringing its information van to Eaglehawk and Long Gully this month to help people learn more about the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

The van will be at the Eaglehawk Library from 10am until 12pm on Friday 16 March. 

iVan will then visit the Long Gully Splash Park from 10am untill 1pm on Tuesday 20 March.

The van has been been on the road since last year and has so far made 75 visits to towns across the region, seeing 1000 people and answering thousands of questions, Intereach chief executive Keryn Fox said.

“The great thing about iVan is because we’re out in the community and quite visible, people will approach us for a chat,” she said.

“iVan really gets us into the heart of our local communities, helps us meet people face-to-face and be able to answer their questions about the NDIS.”

Intereach has partnered with the National Disability Insurance Agency to deliver the NDIS in the Campaspe, Central Goldfields, Greater Bendigo, Loddon, Macedon Ranges and Mount Alexander areas.
