TAFE & Adult Provision The latest on the NDIS Review

Since the review into the NDIS began, the variety of responses seen by the panel is showing that there are no quick fixes to the problems within the scheme.

The National Cabinet met in Brisbane on 28 April and committed to an NDIS Financial Sustainability Framework to ensure that the NDIS can continue to provide life-changing outcomes for future generations of Australians with disability.

Given this commitment, it is more important than ever that we ensure that people with disability, their families, carers and the workforce are at the centre of this review.

If you or someone you know would like to have their say, it’s not too late.

There have been more than a thousand submissions, in addition to meetings with those living with disability, their families, carers, service providers and government officials. These have all provided invaluable insights.

Issues raised include: the planning process, correct skills and knowledge for staff, staff having appropriate disability qualifications, access to regular professional development, and ways to maintain and grow workforce capacity.

The AEU has made an individual submission, and been part of a joint submission with HACSU and the 24 individual providers who are signed on to the Disability MEA.

The table below offers a breakdown of the respondents to the NDIS Review to date. If you or someone you know would like to have their say, it’s not too late – the site makes it very simple to make a submission, and the deadline has been extended to Friday 18 August 2023.
