DisabilityCare Australia goes live!
Apart from having general access to this new website, people with disabilities can complete a questionnaire - My Access Checker - to help determine their likelihood of being eligible for support from DisabilityCare Australia.
LISA Comment: No matter all the hype, we should not forget the original intention of the NDIS. That is to eliminate the waiting list for support services, and ensure all support services are entitlement based - not the present charity hand-out based services where consumers are considered lucky to get what they get, and should never, ever, complain.
A major factor to achieving true entitlement support services, is eliminating the entrenched culture amongst many of the current support services of placing the consumer and their stakeholders far from the centre of service provision.
Further NDIS intention is that all with disabilities be assessed for their ongoing needs. And, that these needs be fulfilled with a tailored, not a generic ISP. There is currently a cone of silence in respect to NDIS ISPs for present group home residents and those needing group homes.
We seek your views and comments on how you feel the NDIS (DisabilityCare Australia) will, in practice, be so much better, or not better than the present support services. Note: Anonymous comment can be sent via our mail address below.
