Change Agents: Rhonda Galbally and Bruce Bonyhady on the birth of the NDIS

Published

In the Conversation their is a new series on change agents and Andrew Dodd (Swinburne University of Technology) talks to Rhonda Galbally and Bruce Bonyhady about their role in setting up the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Change Agents, focuses on telling the stories of how ordinary people have brought about profound political, social and cultural change.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the biggest social reform in Australia this century. By 2022 it will help half a million people access comprehensive disability support at a cost of around A$25 billion.

On this program, two of the NDIS’ founders explain how they developed something so radical and comprehensive and then won support for the idea. Bruce Bonyhady is the chairman and Rhonda Galbally is a board member of the National Disability Insurance Agency, the body that implements the NDIS.

Change Agents is a collaboration between The Conversation and the Swinburne Leadership Institute and Swinburne University’s Department of Media and Communication. It is presented by Andrew Dodd and produced by Sam Wilson, with production by Heather Jarvis.
