As part of our commitment to advocacy, and supporting people living MND to have a voice in the political arena, we reached out to you for your feedback about the supports and services you have received as part of the NDIS.

With the amazing feedback we received from many of our stakeholders, we prepared a submission paper detailing the positive aspects of the scheme, as well as several opportunities for improvement.

On 28th Of November, we received notice that “The committee has decided to accept and publish your organisation’s submission as public”.

Your public submission is accessible from the committee’s website:

This is extremely exciting news! To know that the Government is hearing your feedback and that this feedback will be used to shape the future direction of the NDIS and the way it supports people living with MND is fantastic!

Let’s keep the feedback flowing!
