We know independent assessments are a big change for participants, their families and carers. That’s why we’ve started to talk about them now, to make sure everyone is prepared for independent assessments to start in 2021.
Participants who volunteer for the pilot will receive their independent assessment results. We know from the first pilot that participants found this information useful in subsequent planning and when choosing the supports they need.
Participants will be able to tell us what worked well in the pilot and what could have been better.
We will ask volunteers for the pilot questions about their experience with independent assessments that will help us get this important change right for all NDIS participants when we commence rollout in 2021.
