The NDIS is making a difference to the lives of many people with disability.

But the NDIS isn’t working well for everyone. Not everyone is benefitting. And that has to change – we can’t let anyone fall through the gaps.

That’s why Every Australian Counts is bringing everyone together again with the Make It Work forums.

The Make It Work forums will be held in capital cities and regional towns across Australia. The forums will give people with disability and their families the opportunity to have their say about the issues that matter most to them.

The forums will feature people with disability and their families talking about their experience with the NDIS. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion. And we will invite local MPs along so they can hear first hand about what needs to change.

We are the experts on the NDIS and know that our stories and experiences are powerful. They helped us win the NDIS, and now they’re going to help us fix it.

Don’t miss your chance to have your say and shape the future of the NDIS. Register for your local forum by clicking the links below!
