What are the new changes to the NDIS pathway?

The NDIS is making some changes to the NDIS pathway.

These changes will be piloted (tested) with a small group of people first, and then introduced to everyone else a bit later. They will include things like face to face planning meetings instead of over the phone; more info in Braille and plain English; a "consistent point of contact"; an easier to use portal; and more.

Your top three topics Disability Loop topics were the NDIS, Disability Advocacy, and organising your supports  We just want to say thank you to everyone for participating in the survey and being involved with AFDO Disability Loop.
