    "People living with disabilities are increasingly facing off against lawyers to get access to the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

    Under the review system that allows people to challenge government decisions, NDIS participants who have been denied supports, and applicants who have been denied access to the scheme can appeal to the tribunal.

    According to new figures provided to the Senate - the agency had engaged a private firm in almost a third of cases since the scheme was created in 2013.

    Mary Sayers, is the CEO of Children & Young People with Disability Australia.
