Changes to NDIS planning, access and the way your NDIS plan is funded are all about to change with the introduction of NDIS compulsory assessments.
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 despite the concerns of people with disability and their families.
So together with a number of groups in the sector, Every Australian Counts is hosting a Virtual Briefing for MPs and Senators on Thursday, March 11 at 12 noon (AEDT) on Zoom.
We need to make sure our elected representatives understand what they will be voting on when the changes hit Parliament very soon.
Will you make sure all of our MP and Senators attend the urgent NDIS Briefing this week?
Here’s how to do it:
- Send an invitation to your local MP, letting them know you want them to attend the briefing and hear from the people these changes will affect. Just fill out the form on this page.
- Or invite any MP/Senator – you can find all of their contact details on the Parliament House website here. Send them the link to our registration page – copy and paste this: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/virtual-briefing-for-mps-and-senators-ndis-changes-registration-143026629499
- Want to join us all at the briefing? Register here.
This event is an important opportunity for MPs and Senators to hear first-hand from people who know the NDIS best – people with disability, families, and people who work to support them – before the changes hit Parliament.
