Disability sector opposes NDIS so-called "independent assessments"

The whole disability sector opposes the NDIA's plans for so-called "Independent Assessments". The logos of some of the first organisations to support this joint statement are seen here.

Their Joint Statement is available from https://everyaustraliancounts.com.au/ndis-sector-statement/.

Minister, The Hon. S. Robert MP, claims to have consulted over the Government's planned changes but clearly he, the NDIA and the Government have not listened to participants and their representatives, to families and carers, to experts and to service providers. The Minister and the NDIA just ignore what the whole sector said when they were consulted. This is not how an effective government minister behaves. This is not how effective governments operate.
