Event – National Disability Summit

Melbourne, 8-9 May 2017


This is a critical time for the NDIS and for every person it impacts. The NDIS is doubling the national investment in disability support and as it expands to additional sites, the industry needs to establish how it’s working in its current sites, with a keen focus on all the key players in the system; consumers, carers, service providers, government bodies and key associations. The 8th Annual National Disability Summit will review the progress and initiatives in supporting people with disabilities and their families to maximise independence and social and economic participation by creating greater choice.
