The NDIS brings a major shift in service provision for people with disability. VCOSS strongly supports the goals of NDIS: to provide eligible people with greater choice and control over their services and improve social and economic inclusion for all people with disability, their families and carers.
As with any large social reform, numerous transitional issues are emerging. While some are “teething” issues likely to disappear over time, others are more substantial. If not fully remedied, these could harm people with disability, whether eligible or ineligible for the NDIS.
VCOSS welcomes this opportunity to comment on the Joint Standing Committee on the National Disability Insurance Scheme’s inquiry into transitional arrangements for the NDIS.
