Tickets are now on sale for the 2017 Strengthening Disability Advocacy Conference organised by the Disability Advocacy Resource Unit.
The NDIS trials are done and we’re now transitioning, region by region, to full roll out across Australia to be completed by 2020. The changes since trial are significant – Planners have been outsourced, the Quality and Safeguards Framework has been introduced and the External Merits Review has been replaced by the NDIS Appeals process.
Advocates are now shifting gear, turning their focus from the euphoric nationwide campaign that got the scheme established, back to assisting people with disability to navigate a new landscape where the signposts are not always clear.
Getting into gear for the NDIS journey will feature a keynote address and facilitated panel discussions looking back on the journey so far, how well the principles of choice and control are being embedded in NDIS policies and processes and what road blocks to avoid on the road ahead.
