The NDIA is improving the experience participants from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds have when gaining access and engaging with the NDIS.
In January this year, the NDIS hit an important milestone. More than 250,000 participants are now benefitting from the NDIS. This means a quarter of a million people are receiving supports and services they need to achieve their goals, including more than 78,000 people who are receiving support and services for the first time.
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants will find it easier to replace their Assistive Technology (AT) to enable them to continue to pursue their goals following the introduction of simpler processes.
The Independent Assessment Pilot, which was launched in November 2018 to better understand the impact of disability for people seeking access to the NDIS, has been extended until April 2019.
Read about the improvements being made to the NDIS pathway, including improvements planned for 2019.
The NDIA appreciates the work of the Joint Standing Committee on the NDIS, and welcomes evidence based insights and reviews, which ultimately help the NDIA deliver a better service to participants.
