Melba are supporting the Teamwork Works campaign because of Changes to the NDIS.
As most of you would have experienced, changes to how the NDIS is being run have caused a lot of challenges for participants and disability service providers including Melba. We are now highly concerned about hidden policy shifts and a lack of transparency in how the scheme is being run.
Melba is calling for urgent reforms of the NDIS, including a review of Supported Independent Living (SIL) which includes group homes, and Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) so each person with a disability receives appropriate funding levels.
As part of our advocacy around the NDIS, we are supporting the new campaign, run by the National Disability Services (NDS), the peak organisation for disability service providers.
The campaign calls for a strong NDIS in the lead up to the next national election and asks the Australian Government to deliver the 3 Ps for the NDIS: proper Planning, fair and independent Pricing and genuine Partnership.
