We commissioned a number of pieces of work to analyse and understand a variety of aspects of the NDIS. This included engaging with Disability Representative Organisations and Non-Disability Representative Organisations to undertake consultations directly with the disability communities to inform the Review.
We have published the reports and papers as an outcome of those works in addition to the submissions we received.

Taylor Fry report
As part of this Review, Taylor Fry was commissioned to estimate scheme benefits as well as costs. This report found evidence the scheme was improving outcomes and benefits for NDIS participants and carers in some key areas. Taylor Fry found measurable improvements in life satisfaction and evidence of reduced hospital costs suggesting better health outcomes for these participants.
