The Minister for the NDIS Stuart Robert and the National Disability Insurance Agency want to introduce compulsory assessments for all new and existing NDIS participants from next year.
These tick-a-box assessments will determine who gets support from the NDIS – and how much support they get.
These assessments are the biggest change to the NDIS since the scheme began. And they are being rushed in without proper testing and evaluation. And despite the very real concerns of people with disability and their families.
So it’s time to let every single Federal MP what we are worried about. And what we want them to do about it.
Just follow these simple steps
