Funding the NDIS in full Disability Ageing and Carers

Funding the NDIS in full

For many people with disability, the current review of NDIS costs reinforces a perceived shift away from viewing the scheme as an investment to become a cost to be controlled. This is creating fear and trepidation.

This submission draws on evidence and VCOSS members’ first hard experience from the NDIS launch and early rollout sites. It makes recommendations to help the NDIS deliver its promise, and ensure no person with disability or their carers are worse off after the transition, regardless of their NDIS eligibility.
