Podcast: The NDIS – One Year On
Thursday, 29th June 2017 at 8:47 am

As we approach the first anniversary of the national rollout and the fourth anniversary since the scheme was introduced in the trial sites, we look back at the highs and lows of the last 12 months, and whether the scheme is on track to deliver on it’s promise.

The first of July 2016 marked the beginning of the national rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

The $22 billion a year scheme, which doubles the level of public funding for disability,  is Australia’s biggest social policy project since Medicare.

It promised to put people with disability in the driver’s seat, and give them more choice and control.

But is the reality living up to the expectation?

In this episode, we speak to the agency responsible for running the scheme, the peak body for service providers, Christian Porter talks to us about the teething problems and we hear from people with disability about whether the market can deliver what they need.

Featured in this episode:

  • Maryanne Diamond, the general manager of Community Linkages and Engagement at the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA)
  • Minister for Social Services Christian Porter
  • Writer and disability advocate El Gibbs
  • Natasha Hudson, founder of Coforte Consulting, assisting organisations affected by the NDIS
  • Fran Connelley, founder of FC Marketing and The NFP Accelerator Toolkit and author of How to Thrive Under the NDIS
  • Ken Baker is the chief executive at National Disability Services.

Produced by Wendy Williams and Rachel McFadden.
