Building a better NDIS
We're making big changes to the way we deliver the NDIS to help people with disability get the supports they need to achieve their goals. This is referred to as the NDIS pathway reform, or the Pathways Program.
You will find a brief description of the pathway reform activities on this page, including when the improvements will be available in your area by selecting the relevant tile below.
How it began - the pathway review
The NDIA initiated a 'Pathway Review' in April 2017 to address feedback about people's interactions with the NDIS. We worked with stakeholders from all states and territories to identify areas for improvement. We then held further workshops across Australia to understand how the proposed pathway could better respond to a diverse range of needs. Workshop attendees directly impacted new pathway designs.
Feedback was captured in the 'Improving the NDIS Participant and Provider Experience' report:
A Participant Reference Group was established to provide further stakeholder engagement to inform NDIS pathway improvements. The group includes people with disability, their families and carers.
