The NDIS has good intentions, but its design doesn't seem to support the unique needs of Indigenous people living with a disability, particularly if they're living in remote communities.
People with intellectual disability experience higher rates of mental ill health than the rest of the population, so NDIS can be doubly relevant.
The NDIS aims to help people with disability live more independently. It was hoped this would reduce carers' responsibilities and allow them more time to work. But evidence shows this hasn't happened.
The NDIS is required by law to provide 'reasonable and necessary' supports. But what this means is often subjective, and depends on the assessor.
