Independent Review of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS Review)

NDIS Review

The NDIS Review commenced in October 2022 and will report to the Disability Reform Ministerial Council in October 2023. 

Under the Terms of Reference, the NDIS Review, focused on:

  • examining the design, operations and sustainability of the NDIS
  • looking at ways to make the market and workforce more responsive, supportive and sustainable.

The NDIS Review is a significant opportunity to investigate and address priority issues with the NDIS and improve the experience of all NDIS participants.

Queensland Government submission to the NDIS Review

The Queensland Government made a submission to the NDIS Review that sets out its key concerns with the operation of NDIS.

These include that it is difficult for people to access the NDIS, the quality of the NDIS planning process is inconsistent, the interface between the NDIS and mainstream services such as health, education and transport is unclear, and there are too few NDIS services and workers in some locations.

The submission puts forward that the NDIS needs to be more focused on outcomes for participants, and needs better governance that places the views of people with disability at the centre.

The submission was informed by the views of Queenslanders with disability and disability organisations.
