Disability advocates call for funds to explain NDIS

Disability advocates have called for extra funding to allow them to help people confused about accessing the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

With the number of ACT participants in the scheme tipped to grow rapidly during the second half of the year, the advocacy groups said pre-planning and knowledge of what was on offer made a crucial difference to outcomes.

People With Disabilities ACT executive officer Robert Altamore, who has been blind since birth, said the NDIS had made a major positive difference to those people who had been able to navigate through it.
