NDIS Bill Amendment Update

The Department of Social Services has created a Q&A page regarding the NDIS Amendment Bill which may answer some of your burning questions.
As you may have seen, whilst providers wait with bated breath, there has been a significant uproar from the disability community about these proposed changes, and the lack of involvement and consultation with the disability community.

Bill Shorten has released a new video series which busts some of the myths about NDIS reforms.

Mr Shorten chatted with Elly Desmarchelier – a disability advocate and brilliant speaker on disability and the NDIS.

Their first videos are live and linked here:



Be sure to keep updated about these changes and the key concepts within the Bill and the proposed changes.
