The NDIS is one of the largest social reforms of recent decades. Supported by a significant increase in funding, the scheme is a joint Commonwealth–state initiative intended to introduce market and insurance elements to the provision of disability services.
Queensland’s transition to the NDIS commenced in January 2016 and the NDIS is now available in all areas of Queensland for all eligible people with a disability. After four years of operation in Queensland, this inquiry has been established to review the performance of the NDIS market in delivering disability services to meet the needs of Queensland participants.
Submissions are due by 11 August 2020.
