NATIONAL DISABILITY INSURANCE SCHEME

Advocating for greater access to evidence-based parenting support within the NDIS.

Unfortunately, an inadvertent consequence of Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is that fewer parents are accessing evidence-based parenting supports and fewer children are benefiting from optimal parenting practices. 

PAFRA are advocating that the NDIS should promote the benefits of parenting support and incorporate mechanisms to permit greater access and participation in evidence-based parenting support.

 

Implementation and Forecasting for the National Disability Insurance Scheme

PAFRA have conducted an inquiry into current scheme implementation and forecasting for the NDIS.  We focus on how the NDIS is implemented and funded, and additional supports that are, or should be available to people with disability.

The inquiry was submitted to the Joint Standing Committee on the National Disability Insurance Scheme in 2022.  It is available for download below.

 

Parents' perspectives

The PAFRA Consumer End User Advisory Group (CEAG) provided insights to the perspectives of parents, to inform the PAFRA NDIS Submission.

A summary of the CEAG was included as supplementary material to the submission, and can be downloaded below.
