Evaluation of the Trial of the National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Institute of Labour Studies (NILS), at Flinders University, is leading a consortium that will evaluate the trial of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This independent evaluation has been commissioned by the Australian Government Department of Social Services (DSS).

The NILS-led team will monitor and evaluate the experience of participants, and their families and carers, service providers and their workforces in the trial sites of the Australian Capital Territory, Victoria, New South Wales, Northern Territory, South Australia and Tasmania.

NDIS Survey 2016

The NDIS Survey and the NDIS Survey for Families and Carers is now underway.  Registration packs are currently being sent out to potential participants.

The registration pack includes information about the survey and the ways that the survey can be completed. The survey is available in hardcopy booklet, online and or can be done by telephone interview. Parts of the survey are also available in Easy English and these can be completed in hard copy form, online or by telephone too.

Both NDIS participants and people with disability who are not yet part of the NDIS; and their families and carers have been invited to take part in this important survey.

We are asking people in the NDIS about their experiences of disability supports and the impact that the NDIS is having on their lives. We also want to know about the experiences of people who are not in the NDIS now but may be in the future. This will help us build a picture about the introduction of the NDIS to make sure that it is implemented across Australia in the best way possible. Hearing what the people who are most affected have to say will help to guide the future development of the NDIS. Roy Morgan Research is undertaking the survey. 

You can find out more about the NDIS Survey from the following links.  Information is in Standard English and in Easy English.
