NDS welcomes the report from the independent panel leading the NDIS Review that was released this morning. The report, which was reviewed by the Disability Reform Ministerial Council in November and considered by National Cabinet yesterday, contains 26 recommendations supported by 139 actions. The report is accompanied by analysis to support their recommendations.
The Panel has seized the opportunity to consider fundamental changes to the way in which the NDIS operates. Recommendations attempt to go to the heart of some long-standing issues — such as simplifying access and improving planning, improving supports for those who are not NDIS participants, redesigning the experience for children, young people and their families, improving the ways in which markets are working and supporting Scheme sustainability.
