A new Chief Executive Officer has been appointed by the National Disability insurance Agency (NDIA) to guide the NDIS during its critical transition period to full coverage across Australia over the next three years.
This weekend marks one year since the full roll out of the NDIS began. While there are good news stories about improved life outcomes, there’s still a long way to go until the NDIS is the one that was promised for all.
Only one week ago a delegation of Every Australia Counts supporters sat with Senator Pauline Hanson to talk about the NDIS and why we need an inclusive Australia for people with disability. This just makes her comments yesterday even more disappointing.
While not everyone agreed that a funding gap existed, there’s been overwhelming support so far for the Government’s plans to fully fund the NDIS through an increase in the Medicare Levy. Here’s a snap shot of the responses.
