NDIS citizens’ jury finds scheme successful so far, but with work to do

Tags: , ,

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) citizens’ jury has found it is already giving people living with disabilities more independence and an improved quality of life, but there is room for improvement in its roll out.

Last February, a citizens’ jury spent four days examining the NDIS and 12 randomly selected people spent three days hearing from scheme participants in trial sites.

The goal was to figure out if the scheme, which will eventually cost $22 billion a year, had been working.

The jury found overall the NDIS was already a success in the trial sites.
