"People are very confused about where to start with the NDIS, so we are offering these free sessions to help families get the application process started,” Sunshine Butterflies founder and CEO Leanne Walsh said.

"The NDIS gives families a real opportunity to achieve their goals and give their child the future they have always wanted for them.”
