Government commits to the NDIS by appointing a Minister


By Jennifer Lumsden, May 30 2019

This positive sign builds on Prime Minister Morrison’s pledge to prioritise the NDIS with its significant problems around access, pricing and implementation.

‘Top of the list for improving services will be ensuring we deliver on the NDIS, working to our goal of supporting 500,000 Australians by 2024/25.
The NDIS is a major social reform and there is much work to do to improve the delivery of these services on the ground,” Morrison said.

Stuart Robert MP will be the minister for the NDIS in a separate portfolio from social services.

National Disability Services acting CEO David Moody said he looked forward to working with the new minister. “The decision to appoint a minister who will focus on the NDIS is positive news for everyone who is participating in, relying upon the scheme, and working to deliver quality supports for people with disability,” Moody said.

Minister Robert has work ahead of him in this portfolio and many will be keeping a close eye out for improvements.
