We will be conducting site maintenance on the DARU website during the week of 10th-17th June. We are not expecting much site downtime, but it may be partially inaccessible during this time. We appreciate your patience during this time!

Participant First: Help shape the NDIS

The Participant First Initiative Is an opportunity for NDIS participants, their nominees, their carers or people with disability who are not NDIS participants to help shape and reform the NDIS. The NDIA want to hear from you about the best ways to improve their approach and to Help improve their policies, services, templates and more.

The NDIS is always striving to deliver a better experience for participants. We understand that the best way to do this is to listen to people with lived experience of disability and first-hand experience of the NDIS. That’s what Participant First is all about.

There are three ways of getting involved:

  1. online and email feedback
  2. one-on-one or small group discussions
  3. working directly with project teams to design a product or policy

Your involvement in Participant First will be kept entirely separate from your role as a participant. Your feedback will not be included in your official NDIS participant record.
