Four Commissioners were present and media presence was strong at the first Community Forum, held in Townsville on Monday this week. Given the chance to tell their stories, people spoke of poor experiences with the education system, issues around transportation, frustration with various parts of the NDIS and poor treatment within open employment and DES services. A summary is available here.
The first Public Sitting will occur on Monday 16 September. NDS will update members via news update, and will facilitate a live webinar, in conjuction with Russell Kennedy Lawyers (further information below).
