Planning policy for personalised budgets and plan flexibility - submissions

We want to thank the community for their recent submissions and feedback on the proposed reforms to ensure a fair and consistent NDIS.

In July 2021, the Commonwealth, state and territory disability ministers made the decision not to proceed with the introduction of independent assessments. Information about independent assessments has been archived.

These submissions have been made by members of the public and the organisations they represent. The views and recommendations expressed in these submissions are those of the respective authors, and not of the NDIA or the Australian Government.

In publishing these submissions we aim to share openly what the community have said to us; we are not endorsing any comments or opinions the submissions contain. We also accept no responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of any material contained in these submissions. 

Please note submissions may have been edited to remove certain words and names of individuals or organisations. We also warn that some of the submissions contain content that may be distressing for some readers.

Reader discretion is advised.

You can also refer to our general disclaimer.
