Jeremy Rockliff,Minister for Disability Services and Community Development
People with disability and those who support them will have the opportunity to offer feedback on disability services in Tasmania through the new Ministerial Disability Consultative Group.
The Group will look at ways the government can continue to improve support for Tasmanians with disability, and encourage members to share their experiences with the NDIS and related policies, to ensure their voices are heard and represented.
We know that the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has changed the way people living with disability are supported, and I am particularly interested in hearing Tasmanians experiences of the program.
The Group will be made up of at least 60% of people with lived experienced of disability, and members will be able to connect from where they live or work across Tasmania.
Membership will be through an Expression of Interest process.
