NDIS Feedback: ‘Eligibility’ and ‘reasonable and necessary support’. A response to the Select Council.

Carers Victoria's response to the Select Council.

Carers Victoria has submitted this response to the Select Council’s paper on defining ‘eligibility’ and ‘reasonable and necessary support’ within the design of the National Disability Insurace Scheme (NDIS). In particular we argue that the needs of caring families must be assessed to ensure unpaid family care is sustainable. We argue that while adequate support services for the person with a disability provides significant support to their families, some (high needs) families need additional in-home, behaviour management and other direct supports.

Carers Victoria acknowledges the traditional owners of this land and pays respect to elders both past and present.
