NDIS launched at Northcott

Forget Saturday’s federal election, Friday was an important day in Australia’s history.

Federal opposition leader Bill Shorten and his wife Chloe took time out from 11th hour campaigning to celebrate the national rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) at Northcott.

Mr Shorten was parliamentary secretary for disabilities in the Rudd government in 2010 and with minister Jenny Macklin, helped make the NDIS a reality.

“Tomorrow is a big day in the history of the nation but as far as I’m concerned it will have to be a pretty big day to top today because today this nation says that we don’t take no for an answer, that we can treat people with a fair go,” he told the launch.
