Group 3

Reasonable & Necessary – making sense of disability reform

With the release of the NDIS Review recommendations in late 2023, Reasonable & Necessary podcast host, Dr George Taleporos, has been busy looking closely at the recommendations and what they might mean for people with disability. 

This year’s series kicks off with a double feature where Dr George, along with a group of sector experts, takes a ‘deep dive’ into what’s in that final report. The podcast Deep Dive into the NDIS Review – Part 1: What happened to participant choice and control? looks closely at how choice and control may be affected in light of recommendations around registered providers. Part 2 looks at assessments, navigators and psychosocial supports. 

This is followed by an interview where we meet the NDIS worker and provider taskforce. This taskforce has been established to ensure the recommendations are interrogated by people with disability through a proper co-design process. You can listen here

In the latest episode, Dr George talks to disability law experts Mitchell Skipsey and Dr Darren O’Donnovan about the changes to the NDIS Act. They explore the reasons for the changes, and how these changes may impact NDIS participants. They also share important details on how you can share your thoughts or concerns on the changes through a submission to the Senate. Don’t miss this important episode! Watch it here.
