NDIS: What’s working, what’s not? Part Two
In the second of this two-part Brotherhood Talk, a panel of experts responds to questions from the audience at a public talk exploring the National Disability Insurance Scheme, or NDIS, said to be biggest social policy reform since the introduction of Medicare.
Leading the panel discussion is Amanda Pagan, head of Inclusive Communities with the Brotherhood of St Laurence Research and Policy Centre. There are four panellists:
- Professor Bruce Bonyhady, Executive Chair and Director of the Melbourne Disability Institute at the University of Melbourne. He was the Inaugural Chair of the National Disability Insurance Agency which implements the NDIS, and a key architect of the scheme.
- Karen Dimmock, CEO of the Association for Children with Disability
- Samantha Connor, disability rights campaigner and convener of NDIS Grassroots on Facebook, and
- John McKenna, disability advocate, NDIS recruiter and podcaster.
