Save our NDIS

The Coalition Government spent a decade trying to undermine our NDIS. Implying that it costs more than it should and encouraging funding cuts wherever possible. Now the NDIS Minister Bill Shorten has joined forces with Pauline Hanson and One Nation to try and rush through Labor’s ‘Getting The NDIS Back On Track’ Bill that will lay the foundation for major cuts to the NDIS. The Greens used our power in the Senate to delay the bill because of serious concerns from disability advocates, it's absolutely shocking that Labor would work with One Nation to try and ram it through the Parliament. 

Join our calls to stop Labor and One Nation and ensure the future of the NDIS is: 

  • Equal and fair to access regardless of what category your disability falls into. Your ability to navigate through bureaucracy should not determine your access to supports or ability to stay on the scheme. 
  • Customisable on a case by case basis. There is no 'one size fits all' when it comes to disability. Supports should be based on individual needs and goals. 
  • Putting disabled people at the centre of decision making. Participants must always have the right to appeal decisions made about their supports and drive any changes made to our NDIS. Agency powers should never eclipse the rights of disabled people.

If enacted this Bill will make it impossible to achieve these goals. Disabled people worked too darn hard to establish the NDIS, to let the government strip it of everything it needs to thrive.

Together we have protected our NDIS countless times. Now we must save our NDIS from Labor's Bill to ensure it holds strong for generations of disabled people to come.
