NDIS Joint Standing Committee to undertake public hearing this month
The Joint Standing Committee on the NDIS has announced that it will undertake a public hearing on the NDIS in Darwin on 21 September 2017.
The hearing will examine the general operation of the NDIS in the Northern Territory. It will be a public proceeding and a Hansard record of the discussion will be prepared.
The hearing will take place at the Novotel Darwin Atrium from 1.30pm to 3.30pm on Thursday.
The committee would like to hear from participants, their carers and family members, as well as service providers and registered plan management providers in the NT to discuss the implementation and performance of the NDIS in the state. It wants to understand the process that people with disability go through to become Scheme participants, and how they have received and used their package of supports.
The committee is also interested to know how service providers are finding the transition to the new Scheme.
The committee is asking current or potential NDIS participants, their family members and carers and service providers who are interested in speaking to the committee to register their interest.
If you wish to register to speak to the committee about your experiences with the NDIS, please contact the committee secretariat on (02) 6277 3083, or send the registration form and Hansard Witness Form by email to .
Information on the committee - including details of current inquiries - can be found on the committee's website.
