There has been a lot of talk in the last few weeks about the introduction of compulsory assessments to the NDIS.

So many in our community have questions and concerns about how this is all going to work.

And why such a big change is done in such a big hurry.

Lots of people have written to the Minister for the NDIS Stuart Robert asking him to answer some very simple questions about these new assessments.

But so far – no answers.

So now it’s time to take the next step.

 

Contact your local MP

The government is planning to change the NDIS Act to make these assessments compulsory for all new and existing NDIS participants.

The legislation will hit the Parliament very soon.

So we need every single Member of Parliament to hear from people with disability and their families about why they are so concerned.

And stop it before it goes any further.

 

What you can do

1. Share your concerns with the NDIA and all of our MPs 

2. Email your MP

3. Visit your MP – in a COVID safe way

4. Email the Minister for the NDIS

We know how much everyone has on their plate at the moment because of COVID19. So we have done as much of the work for you as we can.

We have all the details of all the Federal MPs and emails and letters all ready to go.

So don’t miss your chance to get involved and have your say.
