Calling for an NDIS
Muscular Dystrophy associations across Australian support the Every Australian Counts campaign, calling for the introduction of a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
The Every Australian Counts website states, “The NDIS will revolutionise the way people with a disability, their families and carers are supported in Australia. It will replace all the current state and territory disability systems, because they don’t work.”
“The NDIS will be a modern, person-centred support system, helping hundreds of thousands of Australians with disability and their families to have the opportunity to participate actively in their communities by providing targeted supports aligned to need.”
The NDIS will be portable – your entitlement to support will be the same wherever you live in Australia.”
We encourage every Australian to join the campaign.
To find out more about what is happening in your State, go to the Every Australian Counts website or contact your local muscular dystrophy association.
