Welcome to the new format for our Consumer & Family Carer Network update. It will bring you the latest news and information to help you navigate the ever-changing world of services and supports under the NDIS.
The Aged Care Royal Commission and the hearing in Melbourne has been a focus for us. We supported James Nutt (pictured) and a number of other people to appear at the hearing, which looked exclusively at the issue of young people in aged care.
At the Summer Foundation we are revamping the way our information is stored on our website, so that it is easier for you to find; the government has just announced a new ‘Service Guarantee’ to make the NDIS more useful; and carers have also been given more attention recently, with additional supports being set up across the country. See our support services article for more details.
We welcome your feedback on our new format. Make sure you check our website and social media posts for more updates.
