Minister for the NDIS Stuart Robert wants to introduce compulsory assessments for all new and existing NDIS participants this year.

These tick-a-box assessments will determine who gets support – and how much support they get.

So many people with disability and their families are worried about what this will mean for them.

But it is not too late to do something about it. NOW is the time to speak out and take action.

So what can you do?

Have your say

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 Senator and 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 all of our MPs and Senators

2. Share your concerns with the Joint Standing Committee on the NDIS Independent Assessments inquiry

3. Email your MP

4. Visit your MP – in a COVID safe way

5. Email the Minister for the NDIS

5. Organisations can endorse the disability sector Joint Statement on NDIS reforms

 

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.

These changes will be introduced very soon. So NOW is the time to take action and speak out.

This is our NDIS. We fought for it. And we won’t stop fighting until it works the way it should.
