Medium Term Accommodation Eligibility, Funding and Quality to Meet the Needs of NDIS Participants

Funding for Medium-Term Accommodation (MTA) under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is not currently delivering the necessary outcomes for participants with high and complex needs. Changes are needed to ensure that this group receives the necessary support to avoid being stuck in hospital or forced into residential aged care (RAC). This position statement outlines the problems and what needs to change. To discuss this further and to lend your support to our statement contact: George.Taleporos@summerfoundation.org.au
