Welcome to all readers of our eNews
People with a disability need trusted information. Every day.
Last year alone IDEAS handled more than 700,000 enquiries and since our inception we've impacted more than 7 million lives.
While the NDIS rolls out people need independent help to understand how their funded supports work, what their rights are, and to avoid confusion and stress. Plus, people still have information needs about everyday issues – work, health, transport and school, as well as very serious concerns including abuse and discrimination.
This Government committed to a national disability information gateway in their election platform. This would be a positive step to ensuring people with disability have access to an independent and trusted source of information to allow them to make informed decisions in their daily living.
