Thank you!

We received hundreds of phone calls, videos, written submissions, and even photos from people with disability and families from all over Australia.

Thank you for taking the time to share your frustrations with the NDIS, and your ideas for how to make it work. We’re passing every single one of them along to David Tune and the review team.

Find out what everyone said here.

You may have seen the announcement a little while ago that the government has appointed Mr David Tune to conduct a review into the NDIS Act and Rules.

Let’s face it, there have been so many reviews into the NDIS over the past 12 months it’s all been a bit confusing and exhausting.

But this review is the most important one yet. We can’t let this opportunity go by.

It’s an independent review, which means the government won’t be able to ignore it’s recommendations. And regardless of whether we have our say or not, the government has promised the legislation WILL change next year.

That’s why this one is the important one. That’s why we need to be crystal clear about what changes we do – and don’t – want to see.

We have already spoken to Mr Tune who told us he wants to hear from as many people as possible.

But we know how tired, stressed and just over it all we all are.

So we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get involved.

So, you can leave us a message, send a video or shoot us a quick email and we’ll make sure the review team gets all your messages.

Or you can take part in the formal consultation run by the Department of Social Services.

This is our chance to help make it work.

Let’s make the most of it!
