New NDIS Consultation Papers

Published On: 15 December 2020Categories: News
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has released three consultation papers and one project consultation report.

The three consultation papers explain proposed changes to NDIS including what these changes will mean for participants.

  1. Consultation paper: access and eligibility policy for independent assessments
  2. Consultation paper: planning policy for personalised budgets and plan flexibility
  3. Consultation paper: supporting young children and their families early, to reach their full potential
  4. The Early Childhood Early Intervention Reset Project consultation report.

Papers 3 and 4 cover the ECEI Implementation Reset project, which includes background to the project for context, areas for improvement and further detail on how best practice is intended to work.

Over the next three months, the NDIS is asking for feedback from participants, families, carers, providers and the disability community about the changes they are making to ensure the NDIS is simpler, fairer and more flexible.

You can have your say on how the NDIS delivers these improvements so that they work for everyone. There are specific questions at the end of each paper around access, budgets and planning, and Early Childhood Intervention (ECEI) implementation.
