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.

The NDIS is making some changes

The CEO of the NDIA sent a letter to all NDIS Participants on Tuesday. It was sent to Participants through the online portal, and it was also put up on the NDIS website. 

The letter was very long, and used a lot of terms that might be hard for people to understand. We've summarised what we think it means. 

The NDIS is about more than money

4 May 2017

A monitor with a booklet that has a dollar sign on the front, and 'ndis'.This year the Productivity Commission is running an inquiry into the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Costs. AFDO wrote a submission answering just some of the questions we thought were important.​ We said that we were very disappointed that the inquiry only looked at costs and did not look at what the NDIS was doing to help people with disability.​ We also said we should be looking at the difference the scheme is making to people with disability, and we said mainstream services need to do their part too.
