NDIS like winning lottery: Murphy

PEOPLE have nothing to fear from the rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), a man with 24 years of industry experience has said.

Barry Murphy, the chief executive officer of Challenge Community Services, was at Dubbo this week to present an information session on changes flowing from one of the largest social policy reforms in Australia’s history.

Mr Murphy said the NDIS was about focusing on individual needs and choices to help people with physical, intellectual and mental health disabilities to live the lives they wanted.

“The disability industry is being turned upside down,” he said.

“But that’s a good thing. From what I have seen, the NDIS is like winning the lottery. It is helping people with disabilities to achieve goals and participate in social and economic life.”
