Thousands of people with disability have been forced to fight against cuts and changes to their NDIS plans with external appeals at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).
But now, we have a huge opportunity to change things.
Minister for the NDIS Bill Shorten and NDIA Chief Counsel Matthew Swainson are looking into new ways to deal with appeals – so that people with disability aren’t forced to go up against expensive and intimidating lawyers to fight for the support they need. They need to hear from you – people with disability and families.
This is an incredible chance to guide the decision-makers who have the power to fix a system that has consistently failed people with disability.
It’s so important that our community’s voices are heard in this process – because no one knows the problems with the current system better than all of you.
