Avoiding simple solutions to complex problems: Independent Assessments are not the way to a fairer NDIS – Full Report

Survey report.

Experiences with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can vary widely. Positive experiences with the Scheme can be life-changing or transformational for children, young people and their families, supporting their human rights and facilitating their goals. But at the moment, the NDIS doesn’t work for everyone.

There are a range of inequities within the Scheme that lead to divergent outcomes and experiences for NDIS participants.

CYDA surveyed children and young people with disabilities and their families to understand their experiences accessing the NDIS and their thoughts on the proposed reforms. This report sets out findings from the 270 people who completed the survey between 21 January and 21 February.
