Public feedback is now invited on draft legislation to deliver a better experience for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants.
Member for Wannon, Dan Tehan said that the release of draft legislation for consultation was a major milestone in the Morrison Government’s 2019 promise to set up the scheme for the future and embed an NDIS which works for everyone.
“In recent months, there have been wide consultations with stakeholders, listening to the experience and concerns raised by participants, their families and the disability sector. The goal is for the NDIS to be a service that can endure, for many generations to come.”
Mr Tehan encouraged NDIS participants and all stakeholders to have their say, during the four-week consultation period.
“This draft legislation is the product of the extensive consultation that was undertaken during the 2019 Review of the NDIS Act, following this current consultation the legislation will be put through the parliamentary processes, which will allow for more scrutiny,” Mr Tehan said.
