NDS Acting CEO, David Moody said “On behalf of NDS and our members, we congratulate Linda Burney and Bill Shorten on their appointment to these important shadow ministries.”
“Ms Burney and Mr Shorten have both have been involved in the discussions around fixing the NDIS, and have been key supporters of this important reform.
“NDS is keen to work closely all sides of politics, the National Disability Insurance Agency and the NDIS Commission to ensure that disability service providers are able to provide quality services for people with disability, to support them to lead an ordinary life.
“Our focus is on working to fix a range of issues with the NDIS. This can only be done by a concerted effort, which means a bipartisan support to deliver the solutions. NDS supports this great social reform that so many Australians wanted and now depend upon.“NDS will continue to engage with the Agency, the Commission and government about future policy directions and priorities for the disability sector. Our members support thousands of Australians with disability who are relying on providers under the NDIS to offer the quality services they need to lead an ordinary life,” he said.
