NDIS in Western Australia

We regularly seek feedback on the NDIS from our individual advocacy and the peer groups that we support. As the peak body representing people with disability in Western Australia we are often invited to participate on advisory councils and reference groups. Where possible we also directly survey our members for their views on how they are finding the NDIS. To keep up-to-date on what is happening in Western Australia we recommend joining the NDIS in WA Peer Support Facebook group, and the PWdWA Facebook page.

Systemic Advocacy for People with Disability WA Project 
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Transition and Interface Issues.

This project is gathering the experiences of individuals, families and carers as the scheme rolls out in WA. A group of participants using co-design will provide recommendations for changes to the NDIS and will prioritise the issues and concerns raised. The project will also provide submissions directly to the National Disability Insurance Agency, the State Minister for Disability Services, and the Commonwealth Government to address systemic and policy issues.

In Western Australia we have had a unique journey to getting the NDIS in place. From July 2014 to July 2018 Western Australia had two different models of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) being trialled in the State. During that period we surveyed people with disabilities, their families and carers in both trials in 2015 and 2016. The reports that were written are available on our submissions page and show many issues in common with NDIS rollout in other states.

For the submissions we made about the NDIS, see our Submissions page.
