Have your say and help to improve the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) been sharing a lot of information about the improvements it is making to the NDIS to make it better for everyone.

For many, the NDIS has been life changing, but others have said it is not as fair, simple and flexible as it could be. Now that the NDIS has rolled out all over Australia, it’s important we work to get the Scheme right so it works the way it should.

This week, four consultation papers were released about how the Agency plans to improve access, planning and plan flexibility, and how it supports young children and their families.

The NDIA invites you to have your say on how it can deliver these changes to make the NDIS work for everyone.

The consultation papers are:

  • Access and eligibility policy for independent assessments
  • Planning policy for personalised budgets and plan flexibility
  • Supporting young children and their families early, to reach their full potential
  • Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) Implementation Reset- Project Consultation Report

Visit the Have your say page on the NDIA website to find more information, copies of the papers, Easy Read versions and to make a submission.

Feedback closes at 10.00am ADST Tuesday 23 February 2021.

The Department of Social Services (DSS) have also released a paper about proposed reforms to the NDIS Act. This paper is available on the DSS website. The DSS will also release draft changes to the NDIS Act for feedback in early 2021.
