Disability Representative and Carer Organisations

We work closely with 27 Disability Representative and Carer Organisations (DRCOs).  

These DRCO’s work closely with the NDIA on reforms, changes and improvements to the NDIS.  

 They were selected for a number of reasons including their:  

  • Significant involvement in the formation of the NDIS and National Disability Strategy and contribution to the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disability.  
  • Extensive knowledge on specific policies that affect people with a disability and expertise in accessible consultation and person-centred engagement.  
  • Strong established connections to large networks of people with a disability across Australia.  

The DRCO Forum meets quarterly to discuss Scheme improvements and experiences of participants across Australia. For quarterly updates you can read our Quarterly Reports.  

Members of the DRCO take part in co-design with the NDIA, working with NDIA staff, NDIS participants and members of the Independent Advisory Council (IAC)
