If you have experience in using or applying for the NDIS, your views are needed to help guide the Centre for Disability Research and Policy’s submission to the Parliamentary Inquiry into NDIS participant experience in rural, regional and remote Australia.

The Inquiry is being led by the Joint Standing Committee on the NDIS, which will report on the NDIS participant experience in rural, regional and remote Australia, with particular reference to:

  • the experience of applicants and participants at all stages of the NDIS, including application, plan design and implementation, and plan reviews;
  • the availability, responsiveness, consistency, and effectiveness of the National Disability Insurance Agency in serving rural, regional and remote participants;
  • participants’ choice and control over NDIS services and supports including the availability, accessibility, cost and durability of those services;
  • the particular experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants, participants from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and participants from low socio-economic backgrounds, with the NDIS; and
  • any other related matters.

The Centre for Disability Research and Policy will host an open online consultation session for those who would like to share their experience. Participant stories will inform the Centre’s submission to the Inquiry and will ensure the submission reflects real-life experiences.

The information session will focus on:

  • Access to NDIS planning in rural settings
  • Specificity of NDIS planning in rural settings
  • NDIS plan implementation in rural settings
  • Access to NDIS-funded services in rural settings
