With all the busyness of International Day of People with Disability yesterday it was easy to miss that the Joint Standing Committee on the NDIS released the first of their reports – this one is all about planning.
And from the very first page they have made it abundantly clear they share your frustration with the slow pace of change.
Earlier this year the national advocacy organisation People With Disability Australia convened a Citizens’ Jury of people in the NDIS trial sites to hear first hand from those experiencing the roll out of the NDIS. The results show strongly that the scheme is working – finally giving people with disability a say in their own futures and supporting them to live their lives how they choose. The jury also offers a host of recommendations on how to make the NDIS even better.
