The independent National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Review panel will be in Geelong on Wednesday 6 September to talk with the local disability community about the direction the Review will take when recommending changes to the NDIS.
The Review Panel is holding an open community meeting in Geelong – one of the first two original NDIS trial sites for people aged 0 – 65 years.
NDIS Review co-chair Professor Bruce Bonyhady AM and panel members invite people with disability, their families, carers and supporters to join the panel for 10am morning tea, followed by the 11am community meeting at Eastern Hub Geelong Community Centre. The 11am event will be livestreamed.
The Panel will continue discussions on challenges identified in the Review’s recently published ‘What we have heard report’ and Professor Bonyhady’s ‘Magic Pudding’ speech delivered at a Newcastle disability community event recently.
Professor Bonyhady has talked about making sure the NDIS meets current and future challenges.
“The NDIS is changing the lives of more than 600,000 participants and their families for the better, but we are yet to see the full payoff from our investment in the NDIS.”
“Individually, the NDIS is opening doors for people with disability and their families and is making our country stronger and fairer – but, nationally, the magnitude of those benefits are yet to be seen.”
