It’s an exciting and busy time for the Summer Foundation.
Our Annual Public Forum on Friday 25 November will look at a reimagined NDIS and what it means for participants. As the Labor Government settles in, it is the ideal time to explore how a reimagined NDIS could truly serve the people it was designed for.
People with disability, policy makers and sector professionals will get together to discuss issues of common interest around the NDIS.
The spotlight on the NDIS continues with the launch of our participant survey report next month (October). Preliminary findings suggest that the NDIS has improved the lives of many people with disability but there are significant issues with the management of the Scheme. Watch our social media channels for report details.
Along with this focus comes a major win on building accessibility standards that will benefit all Australians in the years to come. Read about the Building Better Homes campaign and the outcomes from the latest meeting of national building ministers.
The Summer Foundation launched its UpSkill program in 2018 to build the capacity of support coordinators. Read about our plans to expand and boost the program.
I look forward to seeing you at the Annual Public Forum.
