The Minister for the NDIS Stuart Robert wants to introduce compulsory assessments for all new and existing NDIS participants from next year.

These assessments are the biggest change to the NDIS since the scheme began – and they are being introduced without talking to people with disability and their families first.

And everything is being done in a big hurry – the legislation will hit Parliament very soon.

So it’s time to let every single MP know what our concerns are. And what we want them to do about it.

  2. It will find your MP for you.
  3. Screenshot from the Guide to meeting your MP showing the example email text.Insert your message in the space provided – you can write your own or use the one we’ve already put together.
  4. If you use the email we’ve provided, don’t forget to add your details. Make sure you edit the text in all of the square brackets.
    It’s really important your MP hears your experiences and why it won’t work for you. 
  5. Hit send.
