The National Disability Insurance Scheme rollout is in trouble.
A young man in Tasmania died waiting for help under the NDIS, with the delay hastening his death.
In areas where the NDIS, has rolled out, People with a disability have been denied care, in spite of previous eligibility, and told their needs are health related, not disability.
We need a national NDIS workforce plan that is effective and innovative that will attract and retain workers to the sector as we experience many unskilled and unqualified workers being engaged in the disability sector to meet the demand.
There are not enough staff at the National Disability Insurance Agency, with only 3000 employed instead of the 13,000 originally planned.
There have been a myriad of reports on these concerns, by the Productivity Commission.
Former Liberal Leader John Hewson has compared the rollout to the Pink batts scheme.
We need to make sure this system is fixed, and funded. We need people power to make these changes. Sign up now to demand action.
We demand a National Disability Insurance Scheme that works, with the necessary funding to provide quality support for people with disability, their family and carers, and workers who support them.
We pledge to take action to achieve a better NDIS together.
