NSW Parliamentary Inquiry into the NDIS – Have Your Say!

The NSW Government is holding an inquiry into how the NDIS is working in NSW, as well as how the transition is affecting other disability and public services, and they want to hear from people with disability.

What is the Inquiry about?

The inquiry is looking into what happens to disability services in NSW now that the NDIS is here. Some of the key questions are:

  • What will happen to disability advocacy, representation and information services, like those organisations that are part of the NSW Disability Advocacy Alliance if they lose funding in 2020?
  • How will people with disability have their say about NSW Government decisions in the future on the issues that are important to them?
  • What services are there for people with disability who aren’t eligible for the NDIS?
  • How are mainstream services, like health, transport and education, working for people with disability in NSW?

 

Submissions closed on Thursday 9 August 2018

 

What Happens Next?

The Committee will consider all the submissions, and it may ask people who have made a submission to come and talk to them. They will then write a report that will make some recommendations for the NSW Government.

You can go and listen to the inquiry hearings as people tell their stories at NSW Parliament House.

Hearings will be held on the following dates:

September 17th – Jubilee Room
October 2nd – Macquarie Room
