Put the heart back into NDIS
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the biggest social reform since the introduction of Medicare, but many people are being left behind – both people with disabilities and the workers who support them.
The Support Disability Support Workers campaign wants to change this. Together we can put the heart back into the NDIS.
Why is this important?
The Abbott-Turnbull-Morrison Government have deliberately undermined the NDIS, meaning:
- People with disabilities, particularly those with complex disabilities, are finding themselves worse-off under the NDIS.
- The dedicated NDIS workforce—most of whom are low-paid women—are facing cuts to their wages and conditions due to inadequate NDIS pricing.
- Quality and safeguards for some of the most vulnerable Australians are being poorly implemented and undermined.
Let's tell the Morrison government and the Coalition to deliver a high-quality NDIS that people with disabilities so rightly demand and deserve.
