Wollongong’s Nina Crumpton is hard to miss.

With fiery red hair, a big voice and a mobility scooter, she says it is not unusual for strangers to approach her in the street and tell her something about a video she made more than a year ago.

Her channel It’s a Wheely Good Life is on Facebook and YouTube and was established to help people with a disability improve their lives through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

“It started because, at the time, I was working for the MS [Multiple Sclerosis] Society and I was noticing a lot of NDIS users didn’t know how to use their funding correctly and didn’t know how to access things in the community,” she said.
