There’s been a lot of talk in recent weeks about “My First Plan” for people who are becoming NDIS participants when the full roll out starts on 1 July. Many people have questions and concerns so we’ve spoken to the NDIA to get the facts on exactly what it means.
Leigh Creighton shared his story with Every Australian Counts just as he embarked on his NDIS journey three years ago. With the full NDIS roll out starting this Friday in many part of Australia we caught up with Leigh to see how it’s working out.
In our Friday Flashback series we turn the clock back to April 2012 when more than 20,000 people attended rallies across the country asking our politicians to make the NDIS real. Huge events, exciting times!
Our Friday Flashback series celebrates Every Australian Counts champions who fought so hard to make the NDIS dream a reality. With just three Fridays to go until the NDIS arrives in many areas of Australia, we revisit the story of James and his struggles to get the support he needed to study at university so he could set up his own travel agency for people with disability.
It’s only four weeks until the start of the full NDIS roll out! We’re continuing our flashbacks by re-meeting Claire Anderson. Local councilor, author, life coach and mother, Claire was one of our early Every Australian Counts supporters campaigning to make the NDIS a reality for so many Australians.
The roll out of the NDIS is just weeks away so we thought it was a good time to celebrate the thousands of Every Australian Counts supporters who campaigned tirelessly for a scheme to give people with disability control of their own lives.
With 127,000 people expected to need housing under the NDIS, a new report has highlighted the need for urgent action on addressing the chronic shortage of affordable and accessible housing for people with disability.
It’s done! The Every Australian Counts team has delivered our giant sign to Parliament House to let Treasurer Scott Morrison know our supporters are counting on him to make sure the NDIS is fully funded in next Tuesday’s Federal Budget.
