The NDIA is not cutting funding for support coordination, and it is incorrect to say funding is no longer available for support coordinators.
New data has revealed how the NDIS continued to support more Australians during 2020—a year full of unprecedented challenges from the devastating bushfires in January through to the COVID-19 pandemic.
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.
The NDIA is seeking input and information on ways to improve how participants make claims and providers get paid.
NDIS participants from across Australia have come together virtually to celebrate diversity in a unique music video for this year’s International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) on Thursday, 3 December.
A nationally consistent NDIS quality and safeguards system is now in place across Australia, delivering strong and consistent protections for every participant in the NDIS.
