NDIS Independent Assessment Rollout Postponed
As our members will be aware, AAPi has been strongly opposed to the NDIA Independent Assessment model. We have spoken out in strong opposition to these changes through advocacy to government and through the media (you can read more about this in our recent media release here and one of our media articles here featuring AAPi CSO Amanda Curran).
Due to the strong advocacy from AAPi, other member association (thanks Occupation Therapy Australia amongst others), Shadow NDIS Minister Bill Shorten and client advocacy groups, the NDIA has announced they are postponing the roll out pending further consultation. AAPi will play a crucial role in these further negotiations.
You can read more on the NDIA website here.
Again, a united and strong voice demonstrates that together we can create a better and fairer system. Thank you to all of members for your support and assistanc
