Getting the NDIS Back on Track - The latest from ndis.gov.au

Media releases are often written with a specific audience in mind, and sometimes the jargon and words used can make important information hard to understand, or even get to. We've summarised and pulled out the key facts from the latest NDIS media release here in case you're interested:


Dated March 27, 2024.


The Australian Government is introducing changes to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to ensure it delivers for those who need it most and aligns with its original purpose.


The changes are outlined in the National Disability Insurance Scheme Amendment (Getting the NDIS Back on Track No. 1) Bill 2024. This bill aims to improve access, plans, budget settings, and quality and safety within the NDIS.


The amendments stem from an independent review and extensive consultations with states and territories. They prioritise enhancing the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission's powers to protect participants from illegal conduct.


Minister Bill Shorten emphasises that these reforms will take time and involve collaboration with the disability community.


The legislation marks a significant step towards the original intent of the NDIS, with further improvements to come through engagement with stakeholders.


The government has allocated funds for co-design and consultation, recognising the ongoing work needed for reform.


The reforms aim to ensure the NDIS is sustainable and participant-focused for future generations, with continued consultation with the disability community.
