UnitingCare Australia has welcomed the passage of the Government’s historic National Disability Insurance Scheme
through the Parliament this week and calls on the states and territories to fund their share of the scheme.
National Director, Lin Hatfield Dodds said the NDIS promises to provide tailored supports to meet the individual needs
and aspirations of people with disability and, critically, to double the current levels of funding to meet those needs.
