If you, or someone you know, have ever felt invisible, waiting endlessly for the supports and services needed to care, it’s time to stand up and be seen.
If you, or someone you know, have ever felt voiceless and alone in a caring role, it’s time to stand up and be heard.
If you believe that people with disability and their families have a right to lead lives of dignity, opportunity, and engagement, it’s time to stand up and be counted.
Every Australian Counts are campaigning for a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) – it’s a groundbreaking social reform that guarantees every Australian a lifetime of support if they become severely disabled. It’s a declaration that we believe every single Australian deserves to live a full, dignified life. It’s an affirmation that, regardless of disability, we are all Australians and everyone deserves a fair go.
Carers Victoria supports Every Australian Counts.

The model of NDIS recommended by the Productivity Commission is not a new tax or an extension of the Medicare levy – it is a social reform paid for out of national revenue, changing the focus of disability support from welfare to investment.
An NDIS will transform the way services are funded and delivered; it will give people with a disability and their families more support, choice and control.
