A new online resource aims to help people understand appeals against NDIS decisions.
It provides information about the way the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) is dealing with some of the common issues raised in appeals against NDIS decisions.
The first quarterly NDIS AAT decisions digest is available on La Trobe University’s Living with Disability Research Centre website. It is funded by the Brotherhood of St Laurence.
The digest aims to summarise some of the AAT decisions about the NDIS that have been published in the preceding 3 months and highlight overarching themes.
By looking at the implications of AAT decisions, the digest aims to inform scheme participants, supporters and advocates and those involved in the administration of the NDIS.
The intended audience is people who have some familiarity with the scheme, including partners in community organisations, advocacy organisations, peak bodies and disability service providers.
The first digest highlights 5 issues that have featured in decisions:
• The purpose and significance of support coordination
• Maintaining capacity of family and unpaid carers
• Perspectives on choice
• Importance of evidence
• Interfaces between NDIS and other systems
