NDIS participants, their families and carers have been invited to have their say on how the NDIS can be improved.
A public consultation process has recently started as part of an NDIS review to look at introducing service guarantees to improve the experience people have with the NDIS.
The review will look at faster access decisions, plan approvals and plan reviews. It will also focus on improving the experience for children and those needing specialist disability accommodation, assistive technology and other similar services.
The Summer Foundation’s Executive Manager – Practice, Tom Worsnop, said this process is an important opportunity to address key issues and make a real difference to the lives of people with disability.
“Now that the scheme is fully rolled out, there is a focus on identifying and resolving issues to make real improvements,” Tom said.
“We really encourage people to have their say as the more feedback people provide, the more effective the process will be.”
Participants, their families and carers can have their say by:
- Providing a written submission
- Completing the online survey
- Participating in a face-to-face workshop
Any changes resulting from this process will be in place
from 1 July 2020.
Further information, including the list of face-to-face workshops, discussion paper and terms of reference are available on the Department of Social Services website.
