The National Disability and Carer Alliance is hosting free forums on the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Queensland.
If you are a person with a disability, family member or a carer, this is a great chance to make your views known in the early stages of the design of the NDIS.
While there are no launch sites currently planned for Queensland, it is still important that Queenslanders have the opportunity to have their say about the NDIS in preparation for it’s eventual national roll-out.
Topics for discussion include:
Assessment, review and complaints mechanisms
What are reasonable and necessary supports?\Individual choice and control
How can people with disability, families and carers be actively involved in the design of the NDIS?
How can we ensure the system is innovative and responsive to needs?
