Today we are excited to launch the next phase in the Every Australian Counts campaign. You told us you’d like to hear more from people in the NDIS trial sites. You told us you’d like to know more about exactly how the NDIS works on a practical level. And you told us you wanted us to keep up the pressure to make sure the NDIS rolls out on time and on budget.
We hear you!
We have taken our notebook and video camera to the trial sites and spoken to lots of people with disability, their families and carers and asked them for tips on what the rest of us can expect.
We have made some sense of the NDIS process to give you a guide on the steps involved.
We’ve asked some thought leaders and advocates for their take on how we are tracking and have also looked around at what else is going on in the sector that we think you might find interesting, helpful or just good for a laugh.
In the end we have a full range of news, stories, ideas and opinions, which we will keep updating every week.
We’d love to feature more of your experiences, get your feedback and answer any questions you might have about the NDIS. We fought hard for it, now we need to make it the best it can be.
Tell us what you think.

Ps. With all this activity don’t think we’ll be taking our foot off the pedal on making the NDIS real. Stay tuned for our next action to tell our political leaders to see it through.
