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 recent months thousands and thousands of people with disability, their families and supporters have taken action against proposed changes to the NDIS – and as a result the new NDIS Minister has announced a pause on compulsory assessements.

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.
