While there are some incredible stories of transformation rolling in from the trail sites, the fact is that most people are still waiting for the NDIS.
At last count almost 9,000 people had approved NDIS plans so that leaves a good 450,000 people to go.
There’s still a lot of work to be done to get ready for this significant reform and yet there isn’t a national, coordinated strategy for how and when these people will get the NDIS.
Instead almost all state and territories have set a start date for the roll out, and one for completion, but no apparent blueprint of how to get there. You can see the specific NDIS rollout dates for each state and territory.
On Friday, 12 December, all state and territory disability Ministers will meet at the Ministerial Council on Disability Reform. Every Australian Counts has launched an action asking supporters to email their Minister and ask them to detail their plan.
