NDIS What’s working, what’s not

More than 300,000 people around Australia receive services through the National Disability Insurance Scheme, or NDIS. Another 160,000 need to be brought into the scheme. So, what’s working and what’s not?

Leading the discussion is Amanda Pagan, head of Inclusive Communities with the Brotherhood of St Laurence Research and Policy Centre. There are four panellists:

  • Professor Bruce Bonyhady, Executive Chair and Director of the Melbourne Disability Institute at the University of Melbourne. He was the Inaugural Chair of the National Disability Insurance Agency which implements the NDIS, and a key architect of the scheme.
  • Karen Dimmock, CEO of the Association for Children with Disability
  • Samantha Connor, disability rights campaigner and convener of NDIS Grassroots on Facebook
  • John McKenna, disability advocate, NDIS recruiter and podcaster.

Transcripts available.
