Support the campaign

Every Australian Counts is the grassroots campaign that changed Australia forever.

Hundreds of thousands of ordinary Australians came together to fight for a fair go for people with disability and for the NDIS. Now we’re campaigning to make sure that it works for everyone who needs it.

Through Every Australian Counts, people with disability, their families and their carers have rallied, written letters, attended forums, spoken in Parliament, met with their local MP, made submissions, told their story – or simply added their name to petitions calling for change.

In July the campaign delivered almost 1000 message to the new Minister Stuart Robert outlining their ideas for fixing the NDIS.

We know if we all work together we can make a difference.

Sign up to the campaign and show your support for a better future for all Australians with disability.

“My NDIS ‘Independent Assessment’ was a nightmare”

“As an autistic person this petrifies me. The NDIS assessors don’t want to hear outside the boxes of ‘yes’ or ‘no’. I can only imagine how bad this will be for people who can’t articulate their needs well. We need to fight and make ourselves heard.”

Aaron Carpenter volunteered to take part in the pilot of the new “independent assessments” being introduced to the NDIS later this year. His experience was a “nightmare”. He wants everyone to know what went wrong – and why we can’t let this go ahead.
