The Minister for Social Services, Paul Fletcher, recently announced the NDIS will fund, as an interim arrangement, the initial assessment, development and monitoring of meal plans for people with dysphagia receiving support in a community setting.
In December last year, the NDIA released a test version of the new NDIS website, as part of a six week trial with the community, asking people to provide feedback on the new site. We are getting closer to the end of the test period and looking to capture as much feedback as possible and prepare to officially move to the new site later in January.
