Anglicare Australia has made the following Submission to the Productivity Commission’s inquiry into the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) costs.

Anglicare Australia welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback to the Productivity Commission on the costs associated with the NDIS and its financial sustainability.

This submission is made drawing on the collective experience and expertise of the eight agencies in our network involved in the delivery of disability services including through the NDIS in six states and territories.

We agree with the framing of the importance of financial sustainability for the NDIS provided by the Commission on page 7 of the Issues Paper, and commend the Commission for the thoroughness of the paper overall.

This inquiry comes at a critical time for the NDIS. Anglicare Australia strongly believes that the establishment of the NDIS is a major achievement.

Our member agencies are already witnessing the transformative power of the scheme for participants, and finding that reconfiguring services to reflect their needs and aspirations is creating opportunities to reimagine and create better outcomes in people’s lives.
