Call for Stronger Engagement with People with Disability in the National Disability Insurance Scheme – DPO Australia

Extract from statement

Civil Society NDIS Statement to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) and the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA)

 A diverse partnership of representative organisations of people with disability, disability advocacy organisations and disability peak bodies have come together to call for stronger engagement with people with disability and our organisations in all aspects of the implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Collectively, our organisations are made up of, represent, work with and / or support hundreds of thousands of people with disability, including current and future NDIS participants.  In calling for stronger engagement with people with disability and our organisations, we outline critical actions to ensure a successful NDIS, one that identifies challenges early, that works with available expertise to design, review and refine issues appropriately and that ensures continuous quality improvement and cost effectiveness by ensuring that NDIS participants are integral to delivery, design and ongoing evaluation. 

Co-design is a founding and integral concept of the NDIS – people with disability need to be integral to every stage of the design, implementation and evaluation of the NDIS.
