What these reforms mean for you

Key facts 

  • We’ve released three papers for consultation.
  • Two of the papers talk about the changes we’re making to NDIS access, planning and plan budgets.
  • The third paper talks about our early childhood early intervention approach and includes some recommendations to improve outcomes for young children and families.
  • You can tell us what you think about how we can make these changes between now and February 2021.

Why are we making changes to how the NDIS works?

Many participants have told us the NDIS has changed their lives for the better, and given them more choice and control than ever before. But we’ve also heard from participants and the 2019 Tune Review that the NDIS can be unfair, complicated, inflexible and slow.

To make sure we are delivering an NDIS that works for you, we introduced the Participant Service Charter and Participant Service Improvement Plan. These documents explain what we will do to deliver on our Participant Service Guarantee

We’re making some big changes, as well as some smaller, practical changes that will make the NDIS work for you, your family and carers, as well as anyone who needs it in years to come. 

The changes we’re making are described in the consultation papers we’ve released. You can read the papers on the have your say page. 

You can tell us what you think about how we can introduce these changes. You can answer the questions we ask in the consultation papers, or you can provide a general submission about what you think. Go to our have your say page to provide your feedback.
