NDIS participants in lockdown in Melbourne towers have been assured that services will continue to be provided. Speaking at the National Press Club in Canberra NDIS Minister Stuart Robert said that all 90 NDIS participants have been contacted by the agency.
“I’ve made it very clear to Disability Minister Luke Donnellan of the need to provide services through to those participants. It is unacceptable if they don’t receive the services because these are services of attendant and care of support that are critical to people with disability and Victoria has given every assurance they’ll be provided,” the minister said.
The NDIS recently announced details of the new Price Guide and have teamed up with Paralympian Dylan Alcott on how to keep up with physical distancing.
