National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants will have greater opportunities to have their say in building a better scheme, through the new Participant Engagement Panel (PEP).
The NDIS has introduced a temporary measure to further support participants during the COVID-19 pandemic, with those in lockdown areas no longer needing to use their support funding to pay someone to cook and shop for them.
Public feedback is now invited on draft legislation to deliver a better experience for NDIS participants.
Eligible NDIS providers, with workers who live or work within 12 Sydney local government areas, can now claim a payment to support their disability workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds CSC today announced an expansion of financial payments available to providers supporting NDIS participants to attend COVID-19 vaccination appointments.
New data shows that the NDIS continues to grow, with the world-first reform now providing disability support to more than 472,000 Australians.
