We deliver our recommendations at the end of October. There are some changes we hope can be actioned quickly and others will take time.
The next steps must follow the mantra of nothing about us. Without us. The transition must include a graduated approach that minimises disruptions and avoids unintended consequences. It must involve people with disability. Learn from previous experiences and mitigate risks.
Everyone needs to be on board to make this happen and make real changes to the scheme and the ecosystem. It's not just a question of timing, but of sequencing as well.
We will provide recommendations about transitioning in our report at the end of the day. The process of transition is as important as the changes themselves.
If we do this right, then we will make the scheme better.
