Senator Mitch Fifield is the Shadow Minister for Disabilities, Carers and the Voluntary Sector and has been the main driver of the NDIS within the Federal Coalition.
He has also been a busy man in recent weeks attending a number of community forums to promote and discuss the NDIS.
The Coalition support the NDIS and say:
The National Disability Insurance Scheme is an idea whose time has come. It has to be done responsibly but it does have to be done. The Coalition will do whatever we reasonably can to make it happen as soon as possible and would accept a Government invitation to be jointly responsible for this vital national project.
The forum is being co-sponsored between local Geelong service provider and NDIS supporters Karingal and Victorian Liberal Senator Michael Ronaldson.
The forum will be a great chance to ensure the NDIS remains a top priority for our Federal politicians and remains high in the public agenda.
