Over the past few months we have been working hard on a campaign that puts a spotlight on the lengthy delays NDIS participants are facing for approval of funding for housing and supports.
The ‘Down to 10 days’ campaign successfully brought the issue into sharp focus during the election campaign and I am pleased to report that the former government, the new government and the NDIA have all publicly acknowledged that it needs to do better. See the full update here.
Now that the election is over and our new leaders have been sworn in, we are focused on supporting the new Labor government to get the NDIS back on track. We would really appreciate your help to disseminate a Survey of NDIS participants that aims to provide an evidence base for scheme re-design.
We recently appointed a new Chairman to the Summer Foundation Board, and we look forward to working with Chris Leptos AM in his new role. We farewelled and thanked Paul for his unwavering support of our work. You can read more about Chris and Paul in this newsletter.
You’ll also meet Connor, who features strongly in the Down to 10 days campaign. He shares his story here.
With the colder months ahead of us and the threat of COVID-19 ever-present, please stay safe and warm.
