NDIS a stunning success

TWO years after the National Disability Insurance Scheme kicked off in Tasmania, Frank Gunn’s family are still pinching themselves.

On the second anniversary of the scheme’s trial run in the state yesterday — which coincided with cake-baking for Frank’s 17th birthday — mother Megan Gunn described the effect of the NDIS as nothing short of life-changing.

Ms Gunn said the self-managed NDIS model she had chosen, which gave her full control over who worked with Frank and how they were trained as well as supported with transport and equipment, had provided a level of control and flexibility previously unimaginable.
