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.
