Productivity Commission Calls for More Inclusive National Disability Agreement

Published

Australia needs to replace its “outdated” National Disability Agreement to achieve better outcomes for the 3.8 million Australians with disability not supported by the National Disability Insurance Scheme, a Productivity Commission report says.

The Productivity Commission’s review of the NDA found the current agreement – introduced in 2009 before the NDIS commenced – did not reflect the current policy landscape and was not clear around who was responsible for advocacy services and support for people with psychosocial disability.
