The Australian Government this month announced three expert groups to help inform the design of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The expert groups include people with disability, their carers, advocates, service providers and other sector experts.
A National Disability Insurance Scheme will start in Australia from July 2013 in up to four locations across the country. From mid 2013, about 10,000 people with significant and permanent disabilities will start to receive support.

The National Quality Framework Working Group have released their latest bulletin regarding the development of the National Standards for Disability Services.
As part of the development of the new standards, community consultation will be conducted in the form of an on-line survey, written submissions and facilitated workshops and focus groups. Details of these are in the bulletin.
