Family and carer outcomes report

'NDIS Family and Carer Outcomes 30 June 2018' is the NDIA’s first annual report on outcomes for family members and carers of NDIS participants.

This report analyses the results of the outcomes framework questionnaires for families and carers of people who entered the Scheme in 2016-17 and 2017-18, and also the one year longitudinal change in outcomes for families and carers of people who entered in 2016-17 and have been in the Scheme for one year.

Leveraging research conducted by the NDIS Independent Advisory Council (IAC), the outcomes framework takes a lifespan approach to the measurement of outcomes. Family/carer questionnaires have been developed for three different participant age groups: 0 to 14, 15 to 24, and 25 and over, in order to recognise the different issues faced by families and carers as the participant they care for grows older.

The report is organised with separate subsections for each of these participant age groups, bringing together analyses from all data sources. High level summaries of results for all questions are included in separate volumes of Appendices.

The final section of this report presents the results of in-depth analysis of employment outcomes for families and carers of NDIS participants.
