Victoria’s tip the balance story

Tipping the balance logo showing a smiley emoji and a sad emoji on scales with the NDIS logo underneath

I have chronic physical and mental illness and am deemed ineligible for NDIS. So I had to leave my support group, because I didn’t have funding. I lost my support worker, because I didn’t have funding. A new scheme was introduced for people like me, but I’m about to have my fourth support worker in less than 12 months. I work in the Disability sector, and have seen conditions for workers and clients deteriorate drastically. We are also losing our jobs, which means clients are also losing us. I have heard nothing good from anyone I know personally. NDIS has made our lives a nightmare.
