I need to know this because:
  • The Act has provided a whole-of-government and community framework to affirm the rights of people with disability and provide access to services and supports.
  • In response to the NDIS transition and change in regulatory responsibilities, the Victorian Government is reviewing the Act, in two streams.
  • The first stream considers urgent, technical amendments needed to ensure smooth transition, while the second looks at Victoria’s broader legislative framework.
  • NDS is seeking feedback on the stream one amendments.
