Changes to NDIS family information
From July 2021 Independent Assessors are being introduced.
What do I need to know
The funding that is received as part of your young person’s NDIS plan will eventually be based on this assessment. There are a number of conversations across the sector and quite a lot of opposition to this way of allocating budgets.
In many instances, this may not be a true reflection of the requirements of a person’s needs and Providers, through National Disability Services (our umbrella organisation) are making representations to the Federal Government to try and either stop this process or ensure its fairness.
What Can I do
You can get further information from the following websites (include all websites addresses)

If you are worried about this, you can contact your local Federal MP and have a conversation with them.
