Participating in the community without NDIS funding
How easy is it for Australians with disability aged 18–64 years who are not receiving NDIS funding to find and use the services and support they need to participate in the community?
This project is designed to shed light on the key sources of support, information and advice available to these community members, and how the Information Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) program is working in particular regions. The research will include Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.
This is a critical time to examine the sustainability, efficacy and equity of the NDIS in achieving its aim of supporting people with disability, and to capture lessons from the experience of Australians with disability who are not receiving NDIS funding.
This is a 12-month joint research project involving BSL, Baptcare and the Melbourne Disability Institute, due to be completed in December 2021.
Invitation to participate
We are currently recruiting participants to share insights from their lived experience by responding to an online survey (one for people with disability, another for their families and carers).
