Property and luxury vehicles worth an estimated $340,000 have been forfeited to the Commonwealth following an investigation by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Fraud Taskforce.
The NDIA has joined the Collaborative Partnership to improve work participation, a national alliance with a shared focus on improving work participation for people living with disability.
Media reporting on the ABC network today regarding Early Childhood Early Intervention supports under the NDIS, requires clarification. It is wrong to link state hospital wait times with access to the NDIS ECEI Approach and doing so could cause unnecessary worry for families. Diagnosis is not a requirement for support provided by the NDIS’s ECEI Approach.
The number of communications staff employed by the National Disability Insurance Agency – recorded in an Australian National Audit Office report on the Department of Defence on Tuesday 28 January 2020 – requires clarification in light of subsequent media reporting.
In response to commentary made in The Saturday Paper on 12 October 2019, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) would like to correct the public record. The article is inaccurate and the reporting may cause distress to people with disability and their families.
The NDIA would like to reassure participants and their families the entities which have been subject of media reporting today in relation to alleged fraud and forgery, are not eligible for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) funding.
