MELBOURNE, 26 October 2020: Bill Shorten MP Labor Party today moved a motion in the Australian Parliament’s House of Representatives opposing the proposed Independent Assessments (IA) in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Moving the motion Mr. Shorten said,” there is evidence that IA may be a cover for the Government to restrict NDIS access and limit participant plans, and privatize the NDIS ‘by stealth’; and calls on the Government to:
(a) listen to participants and immediately pause the rollout of the current IA program;

(b) hold a genuine, transparent consultation process to confirm what the issues are and trial different options;

(c) co-design the solution best supported by evidence with participants, families, carers and the sector; and

(d) make public all modelling, actuarial advice and evaluation reports used to support the chosen program, showing numbers of participants whose NDIS funding or eligibility will be impacted.”

Labor MP Julian Hill and others supported the motion, while Coalition MPs opposed the motion saying the motion is Labor’s scare tactics. The debate on the motion has not concluded.

There are 400,000 recipients getting support under the NDIS.

They Call me Shuffles

    A diagnosis with Parkinson's changes a lot of things: Motor function, non-motor functions, but maybe even more powerful is the changes in social interactions. I personally don't mind being called "Shuffles" now, I did at first (8 or so years ago I think), I...
