The NDIS now has its own Minister – and the PM has given him the critically important job of getting the NDIS back on track.
Stuart Robert is the man with the big task ahead of him to get the NDIS working the way it should.
And we think his first job should be to listen to the people who know best about what is and isn’t working – and what should be done to fix it.
Before the election, our Government made a lot of promises about the NDIS and supporting our community. These promises included:
- Introducing a new NDIS Participant Guarantee that will let us know how quickly we can access our plans and supports and when to expect them
- A 7% employment target for people with disability across the Australian Public Service
- A new $45 million online information gateway for people with disability, their families and carers
- Investing another $20 million into the Community Connectors program to help families and participants in rural and regional areas and from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds navigate the NDIS
But we also know there is so much more that needs to be done. We want to make sure Minister Robert hears loud and clear that we expect him to listen to us and take action.
We will collect all your responses and deliver them to the Minister.
We know everyone is tired after the election. But we also know that together we are powerful.
Together we can send a message to Minister Robert that we won’t let him drag his feet when it comes to taking action.
Let’s give our new Minister a big push to make sure he delivers the NDIS we’ve been fighting so long for!
