The NDIA is not cutting funding for support coordination, and it is incorrect to say funding is no longer available for support coordinators.
Some temporary COVID-19 measures will end on 28 February 2021, while some supports have been extended nationally until 30 June 2021 to help safely deliver supports and services in a COVID normal situation.
Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Stuart Robert, has confirmed NDIS participants in declared hotspot local government areas have access to a range of temporary measures to ensure they can receive their disability-related supports, in line with public health advice. These measures are currently available in the declared hotspot local government area of the Northern Beaches, Sydney.
Temporary measures introduced earlier this year to ensure National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants continue to access their essential disability supports during the COVID-19 pandemic will be extended.
