Policy and Advocacy Disability Update 22 April 2024

New NDIS Legislation was introduced into Federal Parliament at the end of March – it will enable the implementation of some the recommendations of the NDIS Review (including changes to plans and assessments) and create new pathways to enable early intervention. The Bill has been referred to a Parliamentary Committee and submissions are invited by 17 May (the date was originally 26 April but has been extended). 

OTA has been invited to be sit on the Provider Advisory Group for the NDIS Providers and Registration Taskforce. The group will meet fortnightly until the end of May. This is an important opportunity to work closely with key stakeholders to inform the policy approach for the new NDIS registration scheme. OTA also attended a specific allied heath roundtable hosted by the Taskforce on 16 April. OTA recently requested members feedback via a survey which will inform OTA’s submission to the Taskforce which is due on 28 April.
