In the middle of a global pandemic and with the country facing the worst economic crisis in more than a generation, the NDIS was never going to be a headline feature of this year’s Federal Budget.
Tonight’s announcement by Treasurer Frydenberg of more than $500 million being set aside for a Royal Commission into the violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation experienced by people with disability, has left disability advocates overjoyed.
Late last week the Treasurer announced he was bringing forward the review of the National Disability Insurance Scheme to be undertaken by the Productivity Commission.
Help make the NDIS a budget priority. The Federal Election is just around the corner and Every Australian Counts supporters are stepping up the pressure to make sure the NDIS is fully funded.
